CfP: Discourses of War: The influence of the war against Ukraine on discourses worldwide

Gespeichert von David Adler am Di., 12.07.2022 - 20:59

Special Issue of the DiscourseNet Collaborative Working Paper Series

Call for Short Papers (1200-3000 words)

The war against Ukraine has significant impacts on many societies world-wide, especially in Europe. The war changes public debates and political discourses in many countries. In addition to that, economic, technical, academic and other discourses are also influenced by this new state of things.
In the last weeks and months, DiscourseNet organised a couple of discussions (including a workshop) in order to reflect on this situation from a discourse analytical point of view. Now, we decided to set up a Short Paper Special Issue with DNCWPS.

We invite Short Papers (1200–3000 words) which reflect on these discourses. Please submit a short discourse analysis or discourse theoretical reflection on how the war is influencing:

  • media discourses,
  • party discourses,
  • parliamentary debates,
  • economic and technical discourses,
  • discourses around war crimes and human rights,
  • discourses around NATO, EU Eastern policy, and potential future enlargement of the Union,
  • discourses around climate, energy and resources,
  • military discourses,
  • academic and educational discourses,
  • and everyday discourses.
