Isf Morning Identity

ISF Morning on 'Identity' The Institute for Social Futures (ISF) is hosting a morning for anyone interested in developing ideas for cross-disciplinary projects on the broad topic of identity in a fast-paced, open space format. We will begin with a talk by Professor Emerita Ruth Wodak that presents a critical discursive approach to tracing concepts of national identity (9:30-10:30). This will be followed by a creative brainstorming session (10:30-12:30) in which we match-make scientists with creative practitioners, medical staff with humanities researchers, ECRs with Professors. The aim is to try out some blue skies thinking around the research that needs to be done in this space and how to do it. There is no need to bring pre-formed project ideas, just some intellectual curiosity and a desire to work with others.

ISF Breakfast Briefing: Discourse and National Identities: The Austrian Case 1995-2005-2015; Delivered by Professor Emerita Ruth Wodak 9:30am - 10:30am, FASS MR2&3 Abstract: Spanning data and analyses since 1995, our project based on the work by Wodak, de Cillia, Reisigl and Liebhart (2009) has elaborated a longitudinal perspective on the construction of national identities in Austria. To do so, we extended the conceptual framework of the Discourse Historical Approach (regarding, inter alia, dis-citizenship, integration, embodiment, mediatization, and social media) and integrated qualitative and quantitative methods. Data comprise political discourse (commemorative speeches, parliamentary debates, election campaigns), media discourse (television and radio programs, newspaper and magazine articles), social media, discourses of civil society and its institutions (exhibitions, catalogues) as well as ethnography, group discussions and interviews.
The analysis of the historical trajectory shows an Europeanization of all levels of discourse (representative, political, media, public, quasi-private) regarding multiple contexts, including crises, elections, economics and terrorism. In this talk, Ruth focuses primarily on aspects of migration and integration and on the significant shift towards culturalist notions of nationhood/belonging.
