While ideology has been treated widely in CDA-literature, the role played
by the interaction of text and image in multiplying meaning and furthering
ideological stances has not so far received a lot of attention.
Mediating Ideology in Text and Image offers a number of approaches to such
analysis, offering students and academics valuable tools for identifying
possible discrepancies between the world and the way it is represented
through various mediational means. The authors' common aim is one of
assisting the audience in reading between the lines, thus offering a
variety of approaches that may contribute to a better understanding of how
ideologies possibly work and how they may be denaturalised from text and

The articles in part I look at rethorical strategies used in meaning
construction processes unfolding in various kinds of mass media. Part II
focuses on the re-semiotization of meaning and looks at how analysing the
combination of text and image may contribute to a better understanding of
ideological processes brought about by multimodal resources. Foreword by
Ruth Wodak.
