Language lies at the heart of social science research as it represents the means by which research questions are both framed and investigated. Language data contribute heavily to qualitative research through interviews, focus groups and media analysis, for example, and language provides the means by which we understand the ideological framing of beliefs and attitudes that critical analysis seeks to explore. Scholars in the Language, Culture and Discourse program engage systematically with language data using established theories of linguistic analysis to provide a critical perspective on social and political problems. As well as investigating research problems that are expressed in the language itself, members of the LCD program apply their knowledge of language and culture to explore issues concerning multilingualism, culture and identity, second language acquisition, intercultural communication, language policy and planning, and interpreter services. In particular, members are concerned with the ways in which these policies and services intersect with conflict, governance, development and justice.
