  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Positioning Theory; Literary Theory; Literary Criticism, Linguistics and Literature; Conversation Analysis; Literature and the Social Sciences.

Positioning theory has been recognized as a productive methodology in the social sciences for almost twenty years. This paper aims to connect it with literary criticism and hermeneutics in two ways. The first part of the paper presents and exemplifies a methodology for the application of positioning theory to the analysis and interpretation of literary texts. The second explores a number of ways in which concepts and tools from literary analysis could be used to make the application of positioning theory in the social sciences more rigorous and more informative.
