John Benjamins Publishing is pleased to announce a new journal:
Journal of Argumentation in Context

Frans H. van Eemeren, University of Amsterdam
Bart Garssen, University of Amsterdam


ISSN: 2211-4742
E-ISSN: 2211-4750

The Journal of Argumentation in Context aims to publish high-quality papers
about the role of argumentation in various kinds of argumentative
practices. These practices include political, legal, medical, financial,
commercial, academic, educational, problem-solving, and interpersonal
communication. The Journal has an empirical orientation and concentrates on
real-life argumentation but is at the same time out to publish only papers
that are informed by relevant insights from argumentation theory. These
papers may also report on case studies concerning specific argumentative
speech events. The journal aims to attract authors from various kinds of
disciplinary background who are interested in studying argumentative
practices in their fields of interest. In analyzing and evaluating
argumentative discourse insights from descriptive as well as linguistic
pragmatics, discourse analysis and conversation analysis will play a vital
role. Special attention will be paid to the presentational aspect of
strategic maneuvering and its linguistic characteristics. In all cases, in
papers published in the journal an interesting and revealing connection
should be established between certain insights from argumentation theory
and some particular context of argumentative practice.

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis; Pragmatics
