This training pathway builds on expertise between King’s’ Centre for Language, Discourse & Communication (LDC) and Department of Culture, Media & Creative Industries (CMCI) and Queen Mary’s Department of Linguistics (DoL). The pathway integrates a shared concern with the semiotic, discursive and cultural constitution/mediation of personal, institutional, social and political relations and identities. In bringing together Queen Mary’s Department of Linguistics with King’s Centre for Language, Discourse & Communication, it also provides an unusually coherent cross-paradigmatic training programme in linguistics spanning ethnographic, interactional, quantitative, experimental, cognitive and formal linguistics.

A. Language, Mind & Society: focusing on the nature and use of language.
