Discourse analytic approaches to language use in selected contexts, a seminar in honour of Trine Dahl


Professor Trine Dahl has been a member of NHH faculty since 1985. In her research, she has explored climate discourse and the discourse of academic writing. Professor Dahl has provided numerous NHH students with the necessary linguistic skills to face a worklife where English is the language of communication. She is a cherished member of the faculty at NHH. The seminar is open to anybody who wants to mark the occasion of Prof. Dahl’s retirement.
