Formatted abstract This thesis develops a critical discourse methodology and applies it to documents from the Hawke and Keating Labor Governments (1983 - 1996). The critical discourse method incorporates the theories of Fairclough, Foucault, and Bakhtin, in particular, with Hallidayan linguistics. The analysis describes the Labor Government's shift from labourism to a consensual technocratic and globalist discourse, based on neo-liberal and neo-classical economic ideology. The thesis concludes by considering the implications for labourist politics in Australia.
