Inequality and new social discourses
The increase in social imbalances in the past decade as a result of economic crises and policies means that inequality is a blistering topic in public debate at a regional, national and international level. Within a context of rapid social change, discourse studies offer a multidisciplinary approach contributing to awareness, understanding, description and eventual combatting of old and new dynamics of inequality. Depending on the perspectives adopted and the traditions engaged with (sociology, anthropology, political sciences, law, linguistics and/or communications studies, among others), the field of discourse studies allows for a multiplicity of analytical viewpoints on complex social processes. From this multidisciplinary approach, discourse studies allow crucial issues in these processes to be examined, exploring the semiotic mechanisms of representation, legitimation, resistance and circulation of inequality in multiple contexts, social practices, identities, and language(s), in management, distribution, hierarchisation, maintenance, transformation and revitalization.
Deadlines: 15 September-15 October 2016 for panels, data sessons, emerging debates; 1 November 2016-15 January 2017 for contributions to panels and individual submissions.
