    Harnessing the Potential of Transmedia Narratives for Critical Multimodal Literacy.Emilia Djonov & Chiao-I. Tseng - 2021 - Critical Discourse Studies 18 (3):349-367.
    ABSTRACT Literary narratives are well recognised for their power to foster engagement with complex social themes. Transmedia narratives, which present the same story in different media, can help advance both critical multimodal discourse studies and multiliteracies pedagogies. To harness this potential, we need to develop methods for systematically relating media affordances to discourse-semantic patterns and the broad social themes these patterns construct in narratives, and ensure these methods build on the knowledge learners bring to the classroom. This article introduces a (...)

  2. Critique, Habermas and Narrative (Genre): The Discourse-Historical Approach in Critical Discourse Studies.Bernhard Forchtner - 2021 - Critical Discourse Studies 18 (3):314-331.
    ABSTRACT Narratives are everywhere. We tell narratives about ourselves and we make the world meaningful through storytelling. We position others through the narratives we tell and are positioned by stories told about us. And yet, while narratives have, of course, been analysed in critical discourse studies, including in one of its most popular approaches, the discourse-historical approach, this article proposes to go a step further by systematically integrating the concept of narrative into the core of the DHA. More specifically, I (...)

    Introducing ‘Narrative in Critical Discourse Studies’.Bernhard Forchtner - 2021 - Critical Discourse Studies 18 (3):304-313.
    ABSTRACT Given that narratives are everywhere, this special issue aims to contribute to the field of Critical Discourse Studies by considering the concept of narrative and showcasing some of its uses in CDS, arguing for its prominent consideration within conceptual architectures in CDS, and illustrating emancipatory potentials of the narrative form in line with CDS’ critical impetus. Indeed, while CDS has long analysed stories, the concept of narrative is employed in a variety of ways, at times lacking a clear definition (...)

    Psycho-Discursive Constructions of Narrative in Archetypal Storytelling: A Discourse-Mythological Approach.Darren Kelsey - 2021 - Critical Discourse Studies 18 (3):332-348.
    ABSTRACT The discourse-mythological approach analyses psycho-discursive constructions of narrative in archetypal storytelling. The what and how of narrative warrants the concerns of discourse analysts who scrutinise the language of text and talk to understand the contexts in which narratives are constructed and their relation to social power. Discourse, semiotics and psychoanalytical theory have been synergised through the development of DMA; by moving towards a psycho-discursive position, ‘affective practice’ was adopted through a revised approach to Wetherell’s concept. This paper makes the (...)

    When Discourse Analysts Tell Stories: What Do We ‘Do’ When We Use Narrative as a Resource to Critically Analyse Discourse?Felicitas Macgilchrist - 2021 - Critical Discourse Studies 18 (3):387-403.
    ABSTRACT Critical discourse analysts are being pulled in two directions. On one side, in the age of validity, inter-rater reliability and evidence-based research, it can seem subversive when researchers ‘tell stories’. On the other side, public relations departments encourage researchers to use ‘storytelling’ techniques to engage public audiences. In this paper, I draw on social and cultural theory to assume that critical discourse analyses are always already narrative. I propose that we embrace the storytelling qualities of our research. Using similar (...)

    ‘“Narrative!” I Can’T Hear That Anymore’. A Linguistic Critique of an Overstretched Umbrella Term in Cultural and Social Science Studies, Discussed with the Example of the Discourse on Climate Change.Martin Reisigl - 2021 - Critical Discourse Studies 18 (3):368-386.
    ABSTRACT In cultural as well as social science studies of discourses, the concept of narrative is used in a very broad sense – as an umbrella term that lacks analytical accuracy. From the perspective of linguistics, it seems obvious to acknowledge five elementary generic patterns. In addition to narration, linguists differentiate between argumentation, description, explication and instruction. Each of these patterns fulfils a different basic pragmatic function. This article tries to make clear and justify why it is important, both theoretically (...)

    Discourses of ‘Service Delivery Protests’ in South Africa: An Analysis of Talk Radio.Sarah Day, Josephine Cornell & Nick Malherbe - 2021 - Critical Discourse Studies 18 (2):245-262.
    ABSTRACT Although dominant discourses of various kinds are frequently reproduced on talk radio, the fundamentally collaborative nature of the medium also means that it is able to serve as a channel through which to challenge these discourses. Using Critical Discourse Analysis, this article examines how neoliberal ideology structures discussions around ‘service delivery protest’ on South African talk radio, and explores some of the roles that talk radio is, and is not, able to play in constructing resistance to neoliberal ideology. Our (...)

    Synthesizing Support: Analyzing Manchester United’s Aestheticization of Solidarity From an MCDS Perspective.Pavan Mano - 2021 - Critical Discourse Studies 18 (2):263-279.
    ABSTRACT When Manchester United Football Club publicly announced the signing of Alexis Sanchez in 2018, it was done through a short video that purported to demonstrate the rich traditions and history of the club, its deep connection with its fanbase, and the strength of its support. However, locating this video within the broader social order where elite football clubs like MUFC essentially operate as for-profit corporations shows how it functions as an instantiation of the market-oriented discourse and rhetoric that has (...)

    Representations of LGBTQ+ Issues in China in its Official English-Language Media: A Corpus-Assisted Critical Discourse Study.Guofeng Wang & Xueqin Ma - 2021 - Critical Discourse Studies 18 (2):188-206.
    ABSTRACT This corpus-assisted critical discourse study examines news reports published by China’s official English-language media from 2000 to 2018, with the goal of understanding how they represent LGBTQ+ issues within the China’s socio-political context. Analysis reveals that the discussion of LGBTQ+-related topics has been consistently discouraged in China’s official English-language media, and the few news reports which have appeared in these media sources have focused on preventing the spread of HIV/aids through homosexual behaviors, on promoting LGBTQ+ rights, and on advocating (...)

    Decolonizing Critical Discourse Studies: For a Latin American Perspective.Viviane de Melo Resende - 2021 - Critical Discourse Studies 18 (1):26-42.
    ABSTRACT Regarding an already consolidated tradition in discourse studies in Latin America, with featured importance in graduate programs in the field of Linguistics and a busy calendar of annual events in the field, it is possible to say that there is considerable amount of imported knowledge being applied and very little creativity in local theoretical or methodological production. Discourse studies are generally divided into two main schools of thought: French discourse analysis and English discourse analysis. The denomination that represents these (...)

    RESUMEN Los preámbulos son introducciones cortas que manifiestan, en términos generales, el propósito y contexto de una constitución. Su contenido presenta una gran variedad de temas que reflejan el momento histórico y la ideología que dio origen al marco legal de un país. En este artículo utilizamos el análisis crítico del discurso para examinar los preámbulos de las constituciones de Bolivia y Ecuador y planteamos que ambos son ejemplos claros de pensamiento decolonial. Nos hemos centrado en tres aspectos del pensamiento (...)
