A new beginning

My 2-year postdoctoral fellowship at the Zukunftskolleg of Konstanz University in Germany officially starts today. I hope it will prove a good opportunity to revive this blog and fill it with content connected to my scientific work. The title of my project at the Zukunftskolleg is: "Attitudes to confessional and religious minorities in the changing Latvian, Lithuanian and Polish discourse". You can find the description of this project here, and my updated profile at here.
For a good start, I'm posting some references on discourse analysis, language in social context and the media below. This is the point of departure for the theoretical/methodological foundations of the project. In the next weeks I'm going to explore the university library in Konstanz in order to see what publications on these issues it offers.
