The funding is for Dr Aletta Norval and Dr David Howarth (both Department of Government) and Dr Ewen Speed (School of Health and Human Sciences) to organise a Network for Methodological Innovation Programme on Discourse Analysis.
This successful application arises from an ongoing inter-disciplinary Discourse Discussion Group hosted by the Centre of Theoretical Studies, involving the applicants and Dr Jason Glynos (Department of Government), Dr Alan Cardew (Department of Literature, Film, and Theatre Studies), Dr Rebecca Clift (Department of Language and Linguistics) plus others.
The Discourse Analysis Network covers a series of seminars, master classes and exploratory workshops intended to establish connections between scholars conducting discourse analysis in different social science disciplines.
It is an opportunity to deepen interdisciplinary contacts between scholars in the UK and the EU with an interest in discourse analysis. It will also encourage cross-fertilisation between policy analysts and practitioners. More information is at: ww.essex.ac.uk/centres/TheoStud/networks_events.htm

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
