Interdiscursivity vs. Intertextuality
« on: January 18, 2017, 02:38:50 PM »
Hi all,

I was wondering if something would be so kind as to illuminate the difference between the two concepts above.

Thanks in advance.

I would say that intertextuality is connection between different texts or speeches physically limited, for instance between two books or two electoral speeches. Interdiscursivity is connection between different "discursive units", for instance between feminist discourse and left-wing discourse, or feminist discourse and advertising discourse, etc. I think it depends on what is a "discursive unit" : an ideological / theoretical unit (socialist, liberal, evolutionist etc. discourse), a unit by types of activities (advertising, administrative, journalistic discourse), a unit by position in society (working class discourse, discourse of the youth, etc.), etc.
