Discourse New Critical Idiom

The term ‘discourse’ has a wider range of possible significations
than any other term in literary and cultural theory. Yet it is often the
term within theoretical texts which is least defined.
Discourse uses a number of literary and non-literary texts to
illustrate how the term has been used. Mills discusses the ways
that feminist, colonial and post-colonial discourse theorists have
appropriated the term developed by Michel Foucault for use in
other contexts. 

In this clear and helpful analysis, Sara Mills has provided a sense
of the historical development of the term discourse as well as
some straight-forward working definitions, as they are currently
used within different disciplines. 

Sara  Mills  is  a  Research  Professor  at  the  School  of  Cultural
Studies,  Sheffield  Hallam  University.  She  has  published  on
feminist linguistic and literary theory and on feminist post-colonial
discourse theory.
