Call for Chapter Proposals: “Positionality and Stance in Political Discourse”
Vernon Press invites chapter proposals on Positionality and Stance in Political Discourse. The volume will be edited by Drs. Lawrence Berlin, Northeastern Illinois University, & Cristina Becker Lopes Perna, Pontificia Universidade Católica do Rio Grande do Sul.
They are seeking chapters that deal with Positionality and/or Stance from a pragmatic perspective–preferably positionality (cf. Davies & Harré, 1990; Harré & van Langenhove, 1991, 1999)–within the context of political discourse, specifically that of leaders (i.e., presidents, prime ministers, etc.).
Deadline for proposals: 30th June 2018
The aim of this book is to examine the discourse of political actors through a pragmatic lens, enabling the unraveling of multiple layers of language use and pragmatic representation within political discourse.
