Generally, the group is oriented towards text interpretation within the humanities, though participants also apply theories and methodologies from the social sciences. In a number of projects, text analysis is combined with classroom observation and/or interviews with pupils, students and teachers.
The group belongs to the Faculty of Education and International Studies.

More about the research
Typically, discourse theory, narratology, phenomenology, identity theory and psycho-analytic theory provide theoretical underpinning in the projects within the group. The most common methodological approach is qualitative, but some participants also work with various forms of quantitative research designs.
The group aims at co-operating in smaller sub-groups on various projects.
