Sketch of an Outline.

The above picture is an outline of a thesis, or at least how a thesis could be structured: literature review, research design, results, discussion and conclusion. The planed thesis is on the relationship between language and authority, or more specifically how language is used to confer legitimacy of knowledge-claims. I’m still working through the specific metrics and research methods, but the theoretical matrix is drawn from Basil Bernstein, Pierre Bourdieu and Legitimation Code Theory.
