Critical Discourse Analysis, Poststructural Discourse Analysis. And Marxism.

It's a right laugh, this stuff. I could happily spend a lot of money on books: (unfortunately, I've gotten into a shift from monthly salary v hourly-paid month-in-arrears situation, which means we're for auld-clathes-and-porridge until the end of November). For now, though, I've got some articles to print off and get me started:
