Language, media and politics: The pragmatics of political discourse

*Bandung: Journal of the Global South* welcomes submissions to the thematic series on 'Language, media and politics: The pragmatics of political discourse'.

In this post-colonial era, the political advancement of the Global South can be largely reflected in and at the same time forms its political discourse, which to a great extent, diverges from the discourses of the developed Global North, in particular Western Europe and North America. This special issue therefore calls for a concerted effort to explore the new theoretical input and methods of political discourse analysis and its application to the study of political development in the Global South.

Political discourse is an interdisciplinary subject of study, situated at the intersection of language, media and politics. Political discourse, in its definition, underlines the significance of language in the study of politics, wherein language can not only be used as a device but also consists of the object of study in politics. What’s more, with the advancement of technology, media has been, in addition to serving as a platform displaying political talks and texts, playing an increasingly important and sometimes even dominant role in modern and/or post-colonial politics.

Upholding the journal’s spirit of promoting cross-disciplinary research, this special issue of Bandung: Journal of the Global South is dedicated to the integrative study of language, media and politics. It aims to address the latest theoretical and methodological developments in political discourse research and their applications. Manuscripts either adopting a global or comparative perspective, or with a specific regional or institutional focus on the Global South are welcome.

Potential topics include but are not limited to:

- New developments in the theoretical frameworks of political discourse

analysis from a pragmatic perspective

- Innovative methods of political discourse analysis via the lenses of

language and/or media

- Special features of political discourse in the Global South and/or
