4th International Conference on Historical News Discourse
CHINED IV in Helsinki, Finland
5-7 June 2014
News Discourse from Early Modern English to the Twentieth Century
We are pleased to announce the 4th International Conference on Historical News Discourse (CHINED IV) to be held at the University of Helsinki, 5-7 June, 2014. The previous conferences of the series were held in Florence (2004), Zurich (2007), and Rostock (2012).
This conference series adopts a broad perspective on historical news discourse and discussions dealing with a variety of news publications are encouraged, including pamphlets as the first real mass media, corantos, and newspapers where texts range from news to editorials, advertisements and announcements, and various other genres. The main theme of the conference will be texts targeted at various audiences in the five hundred years in focus. The beginnings of more popular styles have usually been placed in the eighteenth century, but styles of writing varied even earlier according to different target groups.
How can we distinguish publications for different audiences?
When did the styles diversify?
What was the impact of changing and increasing readership on news discourse?
We would particularly like to invite pragmatic and sociolinguistic discourse studies, and new developments of corpus linguistic applications.
Prof. Martin Conboy (University of Sheffield, UK)
Prof. Roberta Facchinetti (University of Verona, Italy)
