2005 (English)In: A New Agenda in Critical Discourse Analysis: Theory, Methodology And Interdisciplinarity / [ed] Paul Chilton and Ruth Wodak, Amsterdam/Philadelphia: John Benjamins Publishing Company , 2005, 283-309 p.Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

Taking the new institutionalism as a point of departure, this article focuses attention on socio-cognitive models or paradigms and the related discourses that are part and parcel of any institutional arrangement and its evolution. Institutional paradigms are communicated and articulated through discourses – descriptive narratives, conceptual metaphors, and normative articulations. Discourses play a central role in actors’ defining their situations, identifying problems and solutions, conducting situational analyses, and making key judgments, among other activities. The article conceptualizes the linkages between organizational arrangements, policy or problem-solving paradigms, and discourses, and identifies those institutional configurations conducive to relative stability, or to paradigmatic and discursive shifts and institutional transformation.
