This is the fifth in a biennial series of international conferences organized around the role of the media in relation to the representation, construction and production of language.*

The primary theme of the 2013 conference will be on journalism - in its many historical and contemporary manifestations - and its redefinition in the face of social media and established practice, taking its cue from the confluence of historic Fleet Street and new media and digital innovation in London.


The first two international Language in the Media conferences were held at the University of Leeds (in 2005: Language in the Media: Representations, Identities, Ideologies; in 2007: Language Ideologies and Media Discourse: Texts, Practices, Policies). The 2009 conference was at the University of Washington in Seattle (Language in the [New] Media: Technologies and Ideology). The 2011 conference was in Limerick, Ireland (Language(?) in the Media(?): Rethinking the Field).
Linguistic Subfield: Discourse Analysis; Pragmatics; Sociolinguistics; Text/Corpus Linguistics
