Discourse Analysis: Theory

Joan Scott: Language Gender and Working Class History:

On discourse analysis: “What counts as experience cannot be established by collecting empirical data but by analyzing the terms of definition offered in political discourse.” There is nothing outside of language and articulation, no reality that is not conceptualized in language. Categories in which we think and experience are not objective, they are linguistic, origins of class is not in objective material conditions, nor in consciousness but in the language of political struggle.
