The Journal of Language and Politics (JLP) represents a forum for analysing
and discussing the various dimensions in the interplay of language and
politics. The basic assumption is that the language of politics cannot be
separated from the politics of language. The notion of ’Political Discourse’
does not remain limited to the ’institutional’ field of politics (e.g.
parliamentary discourse, election campaigns, party programmes, speeches, etc.)
but opens to all linguistic manifestations that may be considered to be
political, provided that it is convincingly argued what makes them
’political’. In order to illuminate new and old forms of political discourses
inter- and transdisciplinary perspectives and elaborated linguistic
methodologies have to complement each other.
Articles should bring together sociological concepts, political theories, and
historical analysis. Methodologies can be qualitative or quantitative and must
be well grounded in linguistics or other relevant disciplines. They may focus
on different dimensions (pragmatics, semantics, social cognition, semiotics)
of political discourse. Since political discourses overlap with other
discourses, e.g. economic and scientific discourses, perspectives of
interdiscursivity and intertextuality are considered to be important. Articles
based on ethnographic studies will be particularly welcome.
The Journal of Language and Politics welcomes review papers of any research
monograph or edited volume which takes a discourse-analytical approach to the
study of language and politics, as broadly conceived above. If you are
interested in reviewing any recent, relevant text please email
c.hartATlancaster.ac.uk and we can arrange for a copy to be sent to you.
The Journal of Language and Politics is associated with the book series
Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society, and Culture, edited by Ruth Wodak,
Andreas Musolff and Johann Unger.
