Discursive families: a comparison of magazine advertising in two countries


The Discursive Families Network research project fostered links between researchers interested in narratives around the family and representations of family life in popular culture. It originates from Leverhulme Network project F/00158/CS and seeks to disseminate some of the findings from this network and to encourage researchers working in this area to connect with each other.

The Discursive Families Network project is a collaboration between The University of Edinburgh (David Marshall), University of Lancaster (Margaret Hogg), University of Oxford (Tanja Schneider), University of Sydney (Teresa Davis) and University of Monash (Alan Petersen).
