2 Discursive resources in the Discourse Unit This chapter outlines theoretical resources that informed the work of the Discourse Unit since it was founded in 1990. The disciplinary location of the Discourse Unit in psychology and the political orientation of its researchers are guiding themes in this account, and I give a historical frame for the work of the Unit.
