CFP - Special issue: Critical Discourse Studies and/in Communication: Theories, Methodologies, and Pedagogies at the Intersections

THE REVIEW OF COMMUNICATION - SPECIAL ISSUE CALL FOR PAPERS
Critical Discourse Studies and/in Communication: Theories, Methodologies, and Pedagogies at the Intersections
Guest Editors: Susana Martínez Guillem (University of New Mexico) &

Christopher M. Toula (Georgia State University)
Deadline for submissions: 15 January 2017

Even though by now Critical Discourse Studies (CDS) as an “enterprise” can be said to hold a secure place in academia as a whole, its presence in US communication departments is still not consistent. If anything, CDS remains a suspect “in betweener,” drawing from distinct and incompatible traditions as they are understood in US-centered academic circles—an impression that has created important barriers to CDS’s consolidation as a marketable enough “brand” of research in communication.

What are some of the tensions that inform these difficulties? Can we work with them in a productive way? If so, how? And what would the implications be for our research and teaching?

In this special issue we hope to address these and other questions, digging deeper into CDS as a potentially useful way to place theoretically-informed practices and practice-informed theories at the forefront of different areas in communication studies. We especially welcome projects that build and/or strengthen the connection between CDS and communication.

CFP: DiscourseNet Congress #2 (DNC 2) - Interdisciplinary Discourse Studies: Theory and Practice
13.09.2017-15.09.2017 - University of Warwick (Coventry, United Kingdom)
Deadline for submissions: 1st March 2017

CFP Discourse NetWhile ‘discourse’ has long been an object of investigation in many disciplines, the contours of a new field of transdisciplinary research are now coming to the fore: Discourse Studies. Known for theoretical orientations and methodological tools at the intersection of language and society, discourse research usually deals with social phenomena with a particular focus on the entanglements of power and language. While Discourse Studies has resulted from the exchange between numerous strands and approaches which deal with the social production of meaning, an increasing need for interdisciplinary exchange can now be observed. The Second International DiscourseNet Congress at Warwick aims to represent the many strands, schools, and perspectives in Discourse Studies, from the humanities to the social sciences, from strictly interpretive to quantifying methodologies, from discourse as a situated practice to discourse as socially distributed knowledge.

We invite contributions which deal with theoretical and/or methodological challenges in Discourse Studies, preferably with a focus on the nexus of language and power. We especially welcome papers which re-examine existing discourse theoretical frameworks, study social phenomena empirically and reflect on the critical potentials of Discourse Studies.
