Journal of Language Aggression and Conflict, edited by Istvan Kecskes, State University of New York and Albany Pilar Garcés Blitvich, UNC Charlotte, has the goal to create a unique outlet for cutting edge research, and has a format, content and structure that reflect the rapidly growing interest in studies that focus on the language of aggression and conflict. The special focus on language use derives from the assumption that although aggression and conflict may manifest themselves through other means, they are fundamentally realized through language. Therefore, a thorough understanding of conflict and aggression needs to be anchored in an analysis of discourse. The journal intends to be a forum for researchers who are interested in new tools and methods to investigate and better understand the language of aggression and conflict. Thus, JLAC is multidisciplinary in nature and encourages, supports and facilitates interaction and scholarly debate among researchers representing different fields including, but not limited to, linguistics, communication, psychology, anthropology, bi- and multilingualism, business management, second language acquisition, gender studies, etc.
