Changing Discourses – Aspects of Linguistic, Social and Discourse Variation

International Conference organized by Károli Gáspár University

in cooperation with

DiscourseNet and DiPVaC Research Network

Budapest, 12th-14th June 2024



Suggested topics for DiscourseNet panels:

    • political discourse and power dynamics: analyzing how discourse-pragmatic features are used in political rhetoric to construct and manipulate power dynamics, influence public opinion, and maintain political hegemony;
    • AI-mediated discourse and human interaction: investigating how the integration of artificial intelligence, chatbots, virtual assistants, and natural language processing technologies affects discourse patterns, pragmatics, and social interactions in various domains such as customer service, education, healthcare, and daily communication. This topic would explore the implications of AI-driven communication on human language use, social dynamics, and identity construction in an increasingly AI-enhanced world;
    • media discourse and framing: examining the role of discourse-pragmatic variation and change in shaping public perception through media, including the framing of news stories, agenda-setting, and the use of propaganda techniques;
    • intersectionality and discourse analysis: investigating how discourse-pragmatic features intersect with various social categories such as race, gender, sexuality, and class to construct complex identities and power relations;
    • digital communication and online communities;
    • language ideology and discourse;
    • legal discourse and social (in)justice;
    • healthcare communication;
    • language policy and planning;
    • multimodal discourse analysis;
    • corporate and organizational discourse.
