Abstract

"The authors of this edited volume focus on the emergence of populist discourses, coming from movements or parties from Romance-speaking countries in Europe and in Latin America. By combining linguistics, social and political sciences in a discourse analytical approach, the sixteen papers enlighten the mechanisms behind populist discourses yielding from different socio-cultural and political contexts. The common denominator of the studies is the focus on the discursive and rhetorical characteristics of recently emerged movements of populism in both continents. Investigating expressions of these political movements is highly relevant in today’s society, where the growing number of populist discourses has become a pre-eminent issue, alongside people’s increasing insecurity regarding future political and environmental challenges. The primary audience of this volume are researchers working in the fields of political discourse analysis; however, this book may benefit anybody with interest in language in politics.&#xD;*******&#xD;‘This volume will be a valuable contribution to the study of populist discourse at the political extremes. It hardly needs to be mentioned that this is one of the most topical issues in political discourse throughout the world today. The specifics of populist discourse are often misunderstood, so I have found this volume enlightening and helpful to increasing my own understanding.’ — Rodney Williamson, University of Ottawa&#xD;‘The anthology provides indeed a fine analysis of discourses connected to different socio-cultural and political contexts […] Since it brings together researchers specialized in media and political discourse analysis, it contributes to a large extent to promote a deeper understanding of current political discourses and extremist ideologies.’ — Ana Pano Alamán, University of Bologna"&#xD;

Abstract

Technologies of Wonder: Rhetorical Practice in a Digital World considers the theoretical and pedagogical implications of designing academic scholarship in interactive digital media, and proposes renewed emphasis on embodied visual rhetoric and on the canon of arrangement as an active visual practice. This project uses the concept of the Wunderkammer to argue for techné and wonder as guiding principles for a revitalized visual canon of arrangement and as new models of invention and intervention in multimodal scholarly production. Technologies of Wonder also presents examples of how this rhetoric of inquiry can be applied to multimodal projects in the classroom.New digital technologies offer viable alternatives to linear, less embodied traditions of academic scholarship. Emerging at a time when academic presses are under considerable economic pressure, Technologies of Wonder also serves as a model for how rigorous intellectual projects can be published and disseminated in less costly, more accessible formats.

Abstract

This open access edited collection examines representations of human trafficking in media ranging from British and Serbian newspapers, British and Scandinavian crime novels, and a documentary series, and questions the extent to which these portrayals reflect the realities of trafficking. It tackles the problematic tendency to under-report particular types of victim and forms of trafficking, and seeks to explore both dominant and marginalised points of view. The authors take a cross-disciplinary approach, utilising analytical tools from across the humanities and social sciences, including linguistics, literary and media studies, and cultural criminology. It will appeal to students, academics and policy-makers with an interest in human trafficking and its depiction in the modern day.

Abstract

Die EU wäre gerne ein "global player", der auf dem Spielfeld von Weltwirtschaft und Weltpolitik den großen Jungs den Ball abnimmt. In Politik und Medien wollen die meisten die EU als globalen Spieler sehen, und zwar unabhängig von ihrer parteipolitischen und weltanschaulichen Positionierung. Doch was bedeutet diese Metapher? Welche Assoziationen weckt sie und welche Annahmen liegen ihr zugrunde? In ihrer gesellschaftstheoretisch fundierten und multidisziplinären Analyse dechiffriert Karin Bischof den "global player" als Verkörperung neoliberaler Sachzwanglogik und hegemonialer Männlichkeit und macht "neue" neoliberale Mechanismen von Inklusion und Exklusion (migrantischer) Anderer sichtbar. Die Metaphernanalyse zeigt: Politische Rhetorik wirkt - und Metaphern des Politischen sind alles andere als bloßes Ornament.

Abstract

Wieso wandelt sich Kooperation in Konflikt? Wie lässt sich der dynamische Wechsel in der deutsch-amerikanischen Sicherheitsstruktur in Afghanistan und im Irak erklären? Dieses Problem geht weit über den konkreten Gegenstand hinaus, berührt es doch auch grundlegende Fragen: etwa die nach der menschlichen Natur oder jene nach dem Verhältnis von Akteur und Struktur bzw. von Ideen und Materie. Auch die Möglichkeiten und Grenzen wissenschaftlicher Analysen bedürfen einer Reflexion. Auf Basis des #on("i")#Critical Realism#off("i")# stellt sich Tim Griebel diesen Fragen und rekonstruiert die Dynamik von Liebe und Macht innerhalb einer historischen Sicherheitsstruktur mithilfe einer korpuslinguistischen kritisch-realistischen Diskursanalyse.
