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 (ATominc /at/ 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.
