    CfP*: Social Media Critical Discourse Studies*

    Special Issue:*Journal of Critical Discourse Studies*

    The Journal of Critical Discourse Studies aims to publish critical
    research that advances our understanding of how discourse figures in
    social processes, social structures, and social change. This special
    issue is in response to changes in mediation technologies of
    discourse i.e. the techno-discursive re/deployments in the media
    industry brought about by the penetration, proliferation and
    concentration of discursive practices within communicative paradigm
    of social media (KhosraviNik 2017, 2018). The issue addresses this
    particular media context against a broadly defined field of Critical
    Discourse Studies. The special issue aspires to bring together
    studies which:

    - Make theoretical and/or methodological contributions in response
    to challenges to CDS notions of discursive/media power,
    representation and ideology etc. as well as adaptations in
    approaches of accessing, analysing and interpreting discursive
    practices online.

    - Consider social media communication as a new paradigm of
    communication as well as the spaces, locations and platforms for
    such communication.

    - Critically unpack the nature of contemporary digital discourses
    beyond merely viewing social media as ‘data repositories’ i.e.
    engaging with changes in production and consumption of digital

    - Engage with original, empirical and current case study analyses of
    various contemporary discourses in politics, culture, identity, etc.

    - Make critical, fresh and meaningful transdisciplinary connections
    with social media theory.

    - View discourse as forms of structured representations across a
    range of modalities of communication including the emerging
    meaning-making artefacts and practices on social media

    - Clearly position the research within the core tenets of CDS i.e.
    its aspirations, assumptions and critique as well as engagement with
    social theory
