Working title: 
Crisis and Conflict in Contemporary Greece: Integrating Critical Discourse Analysis and Corpus Linguistics

Edited by Ourania Hatzidaki (Hellenic Air Force Academy, Greece) and Dionysis Goutsos (University of Athens, Greece).

In the context of the 11th International Conference on Greek Linguistics in September 2013 (University of the Aegean, Rhodes, Greece) a workshop was held under the title “(Critical) Discourse Analysis (CDA) and Corpus Linguistics (CL): A Methodological Synergy for the Study of Modern Greek”. A British publisher has expressed an interest in publishing an edited volume on this theme. We invite you to submit a chapter abstract for inclusion in a book proposal to be submitted to the publishing house.

The aim of this edited volume is to reflect the growing interest in integrating the critical discourse analysis and corpus linguistics methodologies/models and to highlight the analytical benefits which can be derived from this symbiotic approach for the study of the Modern Greek language, society and culture. This project purports to compile a body of scholarly work in an area with so far only sporadic publications for the specific language. Potential contributors are encouraged to propose original analyses which consciously and systematically employ both the CDA and CL approaches in a balanced, complementary and mutually informing and enhancing manner. Ideally, projects should do justice to, and creatively combine the critical and in-depth study of both computationally extracted corpus-driven data (e.g. frequency, keyword, or collocations lists, concordances etc.) and whole texts or substantial excerpts thereof (e.g. extended concordance lines) (plus, possibly, other forms of discourse or contextual/extra-textual information such as images, graphics etc.).

In terms of subject matter, the book focuses on instances of socio-political crisis in contemporary Greece, i.e. throughout the metapolitefsi period (from the 1974 democratic transition to the present day). Topics may include the activity of Greek social-revolutionary terrorist groups, the 2008 riots prompted by the murder of Alexandros Grigoropoulos, the current Greek debt crisis and its socio-economic impact, the recent rise of the far-right Golden Dawn party and the crisis following the murder of Pavlos Fyssas, etc. Relevant discourses may be culled from official/establishment and anti-establishment sources, neo-Nazism or anti-Nazism supporters, the (New) Media, graffiti and so on.

Submitting a proposal:
Potential contributors are expected to send in an abstract of their proposed paper by January 20, 2014 to the editors Ourania Hatzidaki (o.hatzidaki at gmail.com) or Dionysis Goutsos (dgoutsos at phil.uoa.gr). Authors will be notified about the acceptance of their abstracts by February 20, 2014. Provided the book proposal is approved by the publisher, a deadline will be set for the submission of full papers by around November 2014.

Abstract format:
- Title of proposed paper.
- Author’s/s’ name(s), affiliation(s) and email(s).
- Proposal of 700-900 words (excl. references), including a description of the article’s theoretical and methodological framework, and its relevance to the volume’s subject matter.
