New Visitor at iCourts Prof. Wolfgang Teubert

Wolfgang Teubert's main interest is meaning and knowledge. Before he came to Birmingham as a corpus linguist, he was researcher at the Mannheim Institut für Deutsche Sprache, studying, among other things, the disappearance of East German public discourse after German unification. Over the last years, he has gradually moved towards discourse analysis from the perspective of social constructionism and hermeneutics. Discourse for him constitutes a (plurivocal) collective mind, while he views individual minds as social constructs. His current topics include argumentation, deliberative democracy and human rights.
