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.

*Background:

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).
