Positive Discourse Analysis

Just finished writing a dictionary entry for “positive discourse analysis” and came across this book, which has a whole chapter on “Critical Discourse Analysis and Positive Discourse Analysis”:

Laura Alba-Juez (2009) Perspectives on Discourse Analysis: Theory and Practice. Cambridge: Cambridge Scholars Press.

Including interesting online links to, e.g. critical discussion on whether positive discourse analysis is just a blase celebration of the status quo, and a recent paper from Jim Martin on the issues.
