CfP - Special Issue: Discursive Practice and the Role of Ideology. Discourse Studies Meets Critical Theory

In Discourse Studies, discourse is usually understood as the use of texts in various sorts ofcontexts (situational, historical, structural, institutional). From these practices of meaning production, different aspects of the social such as identities, believes, attitudes, institutions, social structures and new text production emerge. Despite this broad notion of discourse, the notion of ideology is often understood as sets of collective beliefs or mental representations.
