Call Deadline: 15-Apr-2008
Text Perspectives in Media and Academic Discourse (TPMAD) is soliciting traditional research and theory-based articles for the upcoming Vol. 6 (2008) issue. The papers from graduate students and scholars from the humanities and social sciences are welcome.
TPMAD is a scholarly publication that is an intellectual canvas where the cultural and linguistic spaces and experiences of new media and scientific discourse are theorized and rigorously explored within global and local contingencies of the present and past.
In particular, we encourage submission of cross-disciplinary research of new media and academic texts, users and technologies. Works that incorporate humanities and social science approaches to scholarship are welcome.
The Media Discourse has taken place mainly through the channel of writing, this definition includes a large number of functions, and the variety of forms that this means of communication can take only the diversity of its production and reception. Relatively little research has been carried in the area of Text perspectives in media texts and their social and cultural aspects. These are important areas, but research should also consider more language-related aspects (while also taking into account their social and cultural contexts). If we want to gain a better understanding of the pragmatics of natural languages, we need to understand the nature, roles and functions of the various genres and types of Media text, the forms of language and textuality of each type of Text.
The notion of Academic Discourse has been under debate for a considerable length of time. Some scholars suggest academic discourse is a genre of its own while others maintain that it is a domain-based / discipline-bound phenomenon.
Furthermore, relatively few researchers have been interested in comparing academic discourse practices and traditions across disciplines and languages. A further issue largely debated in the European context is the impact of the emergent European research area and the relevance it bears to the structuring of argumentation in the academic discourse.
The aim of the publication is to provide a multidisciplinary forum for discussing theoretical issues and innovative methodological approaches in order to stimulate the on-going debate in this field.
We invite papers that interpret the book theme broadly, including but not limited to the following areas:
* Multidisciplinary Approaches to Discourse (typology, structure, forms for Media and Academic Texts and their purposes).
* Cross-cultural and Cross-linguistic Perspectives on Media and Academic Discourse (e.g. the question of (cultural) identity, rhetorical traditions and argumentation)
* Genre-related linguistic issues
* Communication & culture in language usage, typology, and universality
* Popularization and Translation of Media and Academic discourse
* Impact of new technologies on media and academic discourse
* Applications of the computer-based text-research
The editors encourage the submission of papers on proposed themes as well as on other topics relevant to the interest of the Book. The language of publication is English, German, French and Russian.
1. The length of a manuscript should not exceed 12 pages.
2. A 50-word abstract and keywords should be given at the beginning of each manuscript.
