Now out: Garzone, G.; Logaldo, M.; Santulli, F. (eds.) 2020. Investigating Conflict Discourses in the Periodical Press. Bern/New York: Peter Lang.

The contributions collected in this book deal with the representation of conflict in the periodical press, which has often been an arena of adversarial stances, staged and enacted either within the same publication or enlarged to involve various newspapers and magazines in a series of provocations and replies. Underlying all the contributions is the awareness that the periodical press provides an ideal terrain for research on the discursive representation of conflict, having the prerogative to combine insight with a constant updating of the debate. The issue is approached in an interdisciplinary perspective, bringing linguistics and discourse analysis with Periodical Studies, hence highlighting the connection between language and ideology. The focus on lexical choices and rhetorical devices used to tackle current controversial issues such as Brexit, immigration, violence in sports, policies regarding health and food, women’s role and legal matters ultimately transcends national boundaries to become more widely representative of today’s discourses of conflict.

This volume is the outcome of the papers presented by linguists at the 6th ESPRit conference held in Milan in 2017. For more information, please visit the website of the publisher, www.peterlang.com.
