racataca Posted September 11, 2013 Share Posted September 11, 2013 Hey everyone, I am currently a second-year MA students at NEIU here in Chicago. My husband, an ESL speaker and physician from Panama, has finally found a steady job in Schiller Park and also at UIC while he studies for his boards, and as such, we're both hesitant to move too far away from the area. I told this to my department and my advisor recommended I look at NIU for Critical Discourse Analysis. I'm particularly interested in political discourse and language used in the construction of identities in revolutionary activity. I've been told that NIU is great for this, and that Betty Birner on the faculty would be a great POI. Has anyone had any experience at NIU in this field? I'd love to hear about it because on the surface, it seems to resolve all my problems! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
