FYI: New Virtual Special Issues - Discourse Studies

Author: Jodie Bell

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis

FYI Body: As part of the inaugural editorial of Critical Discourse Studies, published
in 2004, the Editors listed five sets of questions that they hoped the
journal could develop and address. We are pleased to present a new series
of virtual special issues which bring together key articles published in
CDS over the past eight years addressing those topics.

The five virtual special issues will be released throughout this year, and
the first, Traditions of Discourse and Discourse Analysis, is available to
read online here:


The issue includes a sample of free to access articles and an introduction
by Editor John E. Richardson.
