Discourse & Society

An International Journal for the Study of Discourse and Communication in their Social, Political and Cultural Contexts

eISSN: 14603624 | ISSN: 09579265 | Current volume: 35 | Current issue: 3 Frequency: Bi-monthly

Discourse & Society explores the relevance of discourse analysis to the social sciences. It stimulates a problem-oriented and critical approach and pays particular attention to the political implications of discourse and communication.

Discourse & Society is a multidisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal whose major aim is to publish outstanding research at the boundaries of discourse analysis and the social sciences. It focuses on explicit theory formation and analysis of the relationships between the structures of text, talk, language use, verbal interaction or communication, on the one hand, and societal, political or cultural micro- and macrostructures and cognitive social representations, on the other hand. That is, D&S studies society through discourse and discourse through an analysis of its socio-political and cultural functions or implications. Its contributions are based on advanced theory formation and methodologies of several disciplines in the humanities and social sciences.

Discourse & Society is an international journal. Its board members, contributors and readers are from many different countries, and this will also be reflected in the variety of the topics, approaches and cultural backgrounds of its articles.

Discourse & Society is issue-oriented. It does not primarily follow the fashion of specific academic schools or paradigms, but focuses on relevant social, political or cultural issues or problems, which often need a complex multi-disciplinary approach.

Discourse & Society is a critical journal. It favours contributions that pay attention to the detailed analysis of social and political relations of power, dominance and inequality, and to the role of discourse in their legitimation and reproduction in society, for instance in the domains of gender, race, ethnicity, class or world region.

Discourse & Society is an accessible journal. Its papers are written in a clear and pedagogic style, avoid esoteric jargon, and respect the needs and interests of readers of several levels of expertise in many countries and disciplines.
