Call for abstracts (Routledge Research on New Waves in Pragmatics)- Early-career scholars ONLY

Goal: Early-career authors are invited to send their abstracts (200 to 250 words in English) for the edited volume 'The praxis of persuasive discourse: from theory to practice', to be included (after peer-review and acceptance) in Routledge Research on New Waves in Pragmatics series. Authors from all over the world can write about theoretical, methodological, and context-specific aspects of the persuasive discourse.

We do not intend to narrow down the focus of the volume so that we would have the chance to receive a broad range of titles related to pragmatics of persuasiveness. Generally, we expect to receive abstracts related to discursive, pragmatic, psychological (the relationship between persuasive text and mind), or social (how persuasiveness is constructed during the interaction, or in different communities) aspects of persuasiveness, among other things. Both theoretical and empirical studies are welcomed, but we can only accept very strong theoretical works, excluding reviews of the literature. Therefore, empirical studies have a better chance of acceptance.

Early-career scholars—scholars who have completed their PhD thesis no more than five years from submission of their proposal—interested in submitting a proposal or manuscript for double-blind review may contact (please also include your graduation date and affiliation).
As for the authors, all of them will need to fulfill the 5-year rule when submitting their proposal (I will ask for confirmation in case the abstract is accepted).

Looking forward to reading your abstracts.
