Call for Papers: Journal of Language Aggression and Conflict

A new journal from John Benjamins Publishing:

Journal of Language Aggression and Conflict

Istvan Kecskes, State University of New York, Albany
Pilar Garc├ęs Blitvich, UNC Charlotte
ISSN 2213-1272 | E-ISSN 2213-1280

The goal of the journal is to create a unique outlet for cutting edge research,
with 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.

We are especially interested in publishing articles and research papers that:

address major issues for developing linguistic theories and models of
aggression and conflict,

explore different ways to extant theoretical constructs to explain conflictive
or aggressive language behavior,

analyze the ways in which aggression and conflict play a role in
constructing gendered and other types of identities.

focus on aggressive communication traits, in particular, argumentativenes,
verbal aggressiveness, bullying, mobbing or trolling,

attempt to come to grips with strategic or instrumental uses of conflictive
or aggressive language, and how these may be related to power,

investigate and interpret the oral and written linguistic realization of real-life
(face to face, mediated -both traditional and new media-, interpersonal,
institutional) conflict situations and happenings to create opportunities for
more productive ways to navigate and resolve conflict,

study the bases underlying and/or influencing linguistic behaviors generally
regarded as aggressive and conflict generating.
