Chapter: Institutional, Professional and Personal Discourses

DOI: 10.1558/equinox.25078


Chapters 5–10 analyse the interview process based on the data from two projects. This is the first of two chapters to focus on the candidate’s contribution. Here the hybrid discourses of the interview are introduced as a key element in the linguistic technologies of the interview. Two of the three central discourses: the institutional and personal are analysed.
