Discourse studies: theories and methodologies at the crossroads of language and society
Editor: Professor Johannes Angermuller (Applied Linguistics, University of Warwick, UK).
Scope: Discourse studies is a field that has been developing dynamically at the intersection of language and society. While discourse analysis is an established subfield within linguistics, discourse designates an object of investigation and topic of controversial debate in many other fields of the social sciences and humanities: sociology, political science, education, history, anthropology, literary criticism, cultural studies, philosophy and beyond. This collection reflects the growing awareness of the many strands and traditions that have been developing in different disciplines and aims to take stock of discourse studies as an interdisciplinary field. Its objective is to step outside the niche of established schools and to make recent discourse-related developments in specialised disciplinary fields available to a broader interdisciplinary audience.
