Dear all,

Routledge has launched a new book series entitled 'Critical Studies in
Discourse', of which I am the Editor. The aims of the series are as
follow: The series publishes high quality original research monographs
broadly in the field of critical discourse studies. It seeks
theoretically innovative and empirically rigorous research that advances
our critical understanding of the interrelations of discourse and social
processes, including all aspects of power relations (such as maintenance
and perpetuation of dominance; negotiations of power and resistances; as
well as solidarity formations for group empowerment). The series
encourages interdisciplinarity of research, and welcomes investigations
of new topics, domains, issues, frameworks and methods, as well as fresh
perspectives on established ones, from a variety of international and
cultural contexts.  A broad understanding of 'discourse' is adopted in
the series to include systematic and explicit analyses of spoken/written
language and other modes of semiosis (e.g. visual images, sounds,
gestures and actions). 

Please get in touch with me if you have a proposal that you think fits
the series, and/or if you have any enquiries.  Please feel free to pass
this information on to interested colleagues.

With best wishes,
