Beschreibung / Abstract
Interest in materiality and nonhumans in social and cultural practices is commonly set against discourse studies. In this paper, we outline possible avenues for dialogue between materialist and discursive concerns in a strand of discourse studies called »discursive social psychology« (DSP). We argue that, in terms of theoretical commitments, DSP enables fruitful points of departure for empirical research that incorporates the material and the discursive. However, we also point out some crucial differences between DSP and contemporary materialism(s) that, we argue, remain unbridgeable. We conclude that combining discursive and materialist approaches is possible but requires careful reflection.
