The Soviet History Research Lab, is extremely happy and honored to invite you for the third research seminar by the Soviet history research lab What is the discourse analysis and how to apply it into social sciences, mainly in history?

It will be rather an introduction, as it is difficult to cover the topic in one session, but the special emphasis will be on the practical application, theory and methodology (exactly what we need, is not it?)
