Current Trends in Discourse Analysis and Applied Linguistics: A Festschrift for Moji Olateju

Discourse Analysis and Applied Linguistics are two aspects of language studies that continue to generate a great deal of global attention among scholars. This is due to the sub-disciplines’ reflection of the dynamic relationship between language and society and their manifestations of the resourcefulness of language and linguistic scholarship in mediating real life human concerns. Mojisola Ajibike Olateju, a distinguished professor of Discourse Analysis and Applied Linguistics in the Department of English, Obafemi Awolowo University, Ile-Ife, Nigeria, with a burning zeal for deploying linguistic knowledge for the service of her society, has contributed immensely to research in these two areas. Professor Olateju has cut her teeth in the waters of the academic world for over two decades.

For Professor Mojisola Olateju’s immeasurable contributions to Discourse Analysis and Applied Linguistics scholarship in Nigeria, we are convinced that she deserves a festschrift. The proposed festschrift titled Current Trends in Discourse Analysis and Applied Linguistics: A Festschrift for Moji Olateju will give room for scholars in language and literary studies to interrogate current trends in the aspects of Discourse Analysis and Applied Linguistics that Professor Olateju’s teaching and research revolve around. Thus, interested scholars in Critical Discourse Analysis, Pragmatics, Advertising Discourse, Literary Discourse, Political Discourse, Reading and Literacy in general, among others, are invited to contribute to this project. Such contributions are expected to address the following topics and related ones that are not listed:

1. Emerging patterns of literacy in the digital age
2. Functional literacy discourse in a developing country
3. Political discourse analysis and the challenges of democratic consolidation in Africa
4. Conversation analysis in student-centred learning interactions
5. Analysis of conflict resolution discourse
6. Stance and engagement in gendered and non-gendered discourses
7. Analysis of fear and empathy discourses in disaster-related news
8. Social stratification and identity construction in social media
9. Negotiating peace in quasi-judicial discourse
10. Psychological hooks in children’s literature
11. Marketing strategies on online advertisement sites
12. Multimodality: theory and practice
