This area combines discourse-related subjects, bringing together approaches rooted in pragmatics, interactional sociolinguistics, conversation analysis, narrative theory, systemic-functional linguistics, and exploratory practices like theoretical perspectives in applied linguistics. Issues of social identity, face-to-face and technology-mediated interpersonal relations in different sociocultural and professional contexts are investigated, such as school, health, business, legal, and prison settings. Qualitative methodologies are used, including research interviews and ethnographic and ethnomethodological approaches, with a focus on language in use and critical reflections as a form of social transformation.
