Citizenship talk refers to various types of discourse initiated to make
citizens take part in politically and socially contested decision-making
processes ('citizen participation'). 'Citizenship' has, accordingly, become
one of the dazzling key words whenever the democratic deficit of modern
societies is moaned about. Asking for citizenship as a communicative
achievement, the present book shows that sociolinguistics and pragmatics
can essentially contribute to this interdisciplinary up-to-date issue of
research: the volume offers a theoretically innovative concept of
communicated citizenship and it presents a set of methodological approaches
suited to deal with this concept at an empirical level (including
contributions from Conversation Analysis, Critical Discourse Analysis,
Social Positioning Theory, Speech Act Theory and Ethnography). Furthermore,
concrete data and empirical analyses are provided which take up the case of
decision-making processes around the application of modern 'green'
biotechnology ('GMO field trials'). The volume thus illustrates the kind of
findings and results that can be expected from this new and promising
approach towards citizenship talk.
