    Discourse Patterns Used by Extremist Salafists on Facebook: Identifying Potential Triggers to Cognitive Biases in Radicalized Content.Catherine Bouko, Brigitte Naderer, Diana Rieger, Pieter Van Ostaeyen & Pierre Voué - 2022 - Critical Discourse Studies 19 (3):252-273.
    ABSTRACT Understanding how extremist Salafists communicate, and not only what, is key to gaining insights into the ways they construct their social order and use psychological forces to radicalize potential sympathizers on social media. With a view to contributing to the existing body of research which mainly focuses on terrorist organizations, we analyzed accounts that advocate violent jihad without supporting any terrorist group and hence might be able to reach a large and not yet radicalized audience. We constructed a critical (...)

    Connoting a Neoliberal and Entrepreneurial Discourse of Science Through Infographics and Integrated Design: The Case of ‘Functional’ Healthy Drinks.Ariel Chen & Göran Eriksson - 2022 - Critical Discourse Studies 19 (3):290-308.
    ABSTRACT Riding on the rising concern of public health and the growing neoliberal self-care agenda, the food market has witnessed a surge in ‘healthy’ food despite the criticism of this food does not help consumers eat more healthily. A growing interest in Critical Discourse Studies is how food marketers colonise not only the food discourse but also the broader ideas and values such as health, politics, and environment. Contributing to this growing body of research, we look at one of the (...)

    The Use of the PATH and FORCE Image Schemas in Barack Obama’s Counterterrorism Discourse Against ISIL.Marek Hampl - 2022 - Critical Discourse Studies 19 (3):274-289.
    ABSTRACT The paper focuses on metaphorical representation of military activities of the US-led international coalition and of ISIL which are construed on the basis of systematic metaphors drawn from the combination of the PATH and FORCE image schemas. The corpus for the analysis consists of 30 political speeches delivered by American president Barack Obama in the period from 2014 to 2016 in which the speaker outlined the actions and military strategies against ISIL. Methodological procedure for the identification of systematic metaphors (...)

    ‘The People Want …: ’ the Populist Specter in the Tunisian President’s Inaugural Speech.Fethi Helal - 2022 - Critical Discourse Studies 19 (3):233-251.
    ABSTRACT This paper combines insights from Deictic Space Theory and Conceptual Metaphor Theory to analyze the Tunisian President’s inaugural speech following his victory in the October 2019 elections. Detailed critical discourse analysis of the deictic exponents and the metaphorical image schemas employed in the text showed a Manichean opposition between the pure/good people versus the corrupt/evil ‘elites’, nostalgia to a pristine revolutionary moment, a pan-Arab discourse which anchors the Israeli-Palestinian conflict close to the local geography and a radical form of (...)

    Doxxing as Discursive Action in a Social Movement.Carmen Lee - 2022 - Critical Discourse Studies 19 (3):326-344.
    ABSTRACT Doxxing is a form of online abuse where doxxers deliberately seek and publish their targets’ personal information without consent, often with malicious intent such as ruining their reputation. Despite its prevalence, doxxing has received little scholarly attention compared to other forms of online aggression, and almost no study has approached doxxing from a language and discourse perspective. This exploratory study analyzes 464 online forum posts and comments related to doxxing during the on-going pro-democracy movement in Hong Kong, addressing the (...)

    The Effect of Media Populism on Racist Discourse in New Zealand.Elena Maydell, Keith Tuffin & Eleanor Brittain - 2022 - Critical Discourse Studies 19 (3):309-325.
    ABSTRACT While populism is commonly considered antagonistic to democratic liberalism, recent research demonstrates how populist rhetoric may highjack traditional liberal discourses and opportunistically refashion them against the plight of minorities. Drawing on the concept of media populism, this research investigates how notions of ‘democracy’ and ‘equality’ were contested in debates on racism in New Zealand regional newspaper, The Taranaki Daily News, and further deployed to promote a populist agenda, against the representation of the Indigenous minority, Māori, in the local government.

    The Spatial, Networked and Embodied Agency of Social Media: A Critical Discourse Perspective on Banksy’s Political Expression.Bolette B. Blaagaard & Mette Marie Roslyng - 2022 - Critical Discourse Studies 19 (2):212-226.
    ABSTRACT This article asks how social media changes and challenges critical agency through spatial, networked and embodied discourses? It argues that CDS has the potential to explore relations and contexts that go beyond the deliberative participatory, affective and exploitative conditions of social media. Employing a critical discursive reading of street artist Banksy’s mural of a Les Misérables-poster on the public wall across from the French embassy in London in 2016, we argue that social media is neither purely deliberative, affective, nor (...)

    From ‘Echo Chambers’ to ‘Chaos Chambers’: Discursive Coherence and Contradiction in the #MeToo Twitter Feed.Gwen Bouvier - 2022 - Critical Discourse Studies 19 (2):179-195.
    ABSTRACT Using the example of the Twitter feed #MeToo, this paper argues that CDS, in its task to understand more about how social media can offer ways for voices to challenge ideologies from below, needs to explore the ideas of ‘nodes’. Right wing populism in the west: Social media discourse and echo chambers. https://www.researchgate.net/profile/majid_khosravinik/publications) and ‘echo chambers’ in greater detail. Though #MeToo did provide an ideological challenge, I show how it is also discursively chaotic and partly driven by influencers who (...)

    Discourses of Celebrities on Instagram: Digital Femininity, Self-Representation and Hate Speech.Soudeh Ghaffari - 2022 - Critical Discourse Studies 19 (2):161-178.
    ABSTRACT Social media has given way to information and prosumption-oriented discursive fields wherein individuals construct their own social identities. Although interactivity, multimodality, user-centeredness and accessibility are the unique aspects of digital media but the fact that digital media as effective spaces for representing extreme self/other representation while being anonymous and free from following social norms, can cause dysfunctional social behaviours such as cyber hate. Mirroring the normative notions of femininity, masculinity and gender stereotype allows groups and individuals to connect and (...)

    Social Media and Terrorism Discourse: The Islamic State’s (IS) Social Media Discursive Content and Practices.Majid KhosraviNik & Mohammedwesam Amer - 2022 - Critical Discourse Studies 19 (2):124-143.
    ABSTRACT he paper examines the digital practices and discourses of the Islamic State when exploiting Social Media Communication environments to propagate their jihadist ideology and mobilise specific audiences. It draws on insights from Social Media Critical Discourse Studies, observational approaches, and visual content/semiotic analysis. The paper maintains the complementary nature of technological practice and discursive content in the process of meaning-making in digital jihadist discourse. The study shows that digital practices of strategic sharing, distribution and campaigns to re-upload textual materials (...)

    Participation and Deliberative Discourse on Social Media – Wikipedia Talk Pages as Transnational Public Spheres?Susanne Kopf - 2022 - Critical Discourse Studies 19 (2):196-211.
    ABSTRACT This paper focuses on the potential societal function of Wikipedia beyond serving as an encyclopedia. That is, it assesses both theoretically and empirically whether talk pages – Wikipedia discussion sites that accompany the encyclopedic entries and provide spaces for debates among Wikipedia editors – may function as transnational public spheres. Despite the increasing number of studies on citizen engagement and participation in the age of social media, Wikipedia as an example of the participatory internet has received little research attention (...)

    ABSTRACT The objective behind the present article is two-fold. Firstly, departing from the assumption that distance and salience dynamics are key to both functioning and impact of the media, we aim to present a new theoretical perspective on social media discourse understood as both product and process – Media Proximization Approach – and thus shed light on the exploratory potential of Social Media Critical Discourse Studies paradigm.

    A War or Merely Friction? Examining News Reports on the Current Sino-U.S. Trade Dispute in The New York Times and China Daily.Fu Chen & Guofeng Wang - 2022 - Critical Discourse Studies 19 (1):1-18.
    ABSTRACT The ongoing Sino-U.S. trade dispute between the world’s two largest economies has since 2018 attracted much attention from the international media. This study used the approach of corpus-assisted discourse studies to compare how leading English-language newspapers from each side—The New York Times and China Daily — discursively constructed this issue. The findings indicated that while NYT tended to profile the trade conflict as a ‘war’ in line with mainstream hard-line ideologies that emphasize China’s presumed threat to national security of (...)

    Deceptive Transparency and Masked Discourses in Ponzi Schemes: A Critical Discourse Analysis of MMM Nigeria.Isioma M. Chiluwa, Ikenna Kamalu & Steve Anurudu - 2022 - Critical Discourse Studies 19 (1):55-72.
    ABSTRACT This study examines specifically, the mission statement and ideology as discursive practices of the Mavrodi Mondial Moneybox Ponzi scheme. As the demand for transparency in governance, public and private practices increase, there is also a rising proliferation of counter forms of transparency in financial sectors. While studies have focused on the practices of transparency in the reports of public and private institutions, very little attention has been paid to the perils of transparency in mission statements of online scam practices (...)

    Un-Braiding Deficit Discourse in Indigenous Education News 2008–2018: Performance, Attendance and Mobility.Kerry McCallum & Lisa Waller - 2022 - Critical Discourse Studies 19 (1):73-92.
    ABSTRACT This article presents a time sensitive critical text analysis of Australian news reporting that has identified, mapped and analysed news reporting about Indigenous education from 2008 to 2018. Three key themes were identified: school attendance; performance as measured by national testing, and boarding school education. A braiding metaphor is introduced to illustrate how the three themes operated independently over time, intersected and together wove a discursive braid steeped in deficit. The analysis is an act of ‘unbraiding’ that aims to (...)

    Interventionist Discourse Analysis and Organizational Change: A Case Example.Rebecca Rogers - 2022 - Critical Discourse Studies 19 (1):37-54.
    ABSTRACT This paper provides a case example of interventionist discourse analysis as a tool to provoke organizational change. I focus on one ‘nexus of practice’ [Scollon, R., & Scollon, S.. Nexus analysis: Discourse and the emerging internet. Routledge] – the Educating for Change Curriculum Conference – across 11 years to illustrate how the analysis was used to contribute to racial justice efforts. The paper contributes to a methodological and theoretical trajectory in the field of Critical Discourse Studies focused on how (...)

    ABSTRACT This article advances a critical approach to the analysis of social policy texts drawing on the philosophical perspectives of hyperrealism, surrealism, ethics, and Critical Discourse Analysis. Drawing on official government texts and speeches on the continuing development of Singapore’s education policy, the paper examines the way metaphors of flexibility, diversity, choice, and opportunity are used within an evolving ideological context that work to continually produce truth conditions as justifications for inequality. In doing this, the analysis foregrounds a functional aspect (...)

    Discourses of the Willkommenskultur (Welcoming Culture) in Germany.Friederike Windel, Arita Balaram & Krystal M. Perkins - 2022 - Critical Discourse Studies 19 (1):93-116.
    ABSTRACT Given the rise of populist parties in Germany and the charge that multiculturalism is dead, the present research examines how everyday Germans formulate an account of cultural diversity and multiculturalism. We employ a critical discursive psychological analysis and focus particularly on the arguments used to criticize cultural diversity and multiculturalism. Asynchronous online interviews were conducted with eighteen native-born German citizens. The data analysis shows that participants criticized cultural diversity and multiculturalism by deploying ‘Leitkultur-style’ nationalistic discourses and normalizing the hierarchical (...)
