DescripciónThe University of Naples ‘L’Orientale’ together with the I-LanD Research Centre invites you to attend the International conference on Words, Images and Ideology of Populism 3.0.

Nationalistic, xenophobic and mostly right-wing populist discourses can be seen both as a reaction to and a proposal to transform prevailing tropes of democratic and multicultural discourses. The tension between this dual way of construing political discourse has become an important line of investigation in various academic fields. This international conference aims to address the different manifestations of ideology in the international media outlets, with the intention of investigating how these practically relate to the socio-political contexts where they emerge. The current international political arena seems to be a fertile ground for the study of the relationship between language use and ideology, especially as present in different media.

Given the thematic scope of this conference, we invite scholars from different fields to present original paper presentations which should adhere to any of the following broad research strands:
- Relationships between linguistic ideologies and the socio-political contexts where these emerge;
- Argumentative and persuasive strategies underlying linguistic and semiotically-expressed ideologies;
- Different linguistic and semiotic ideological construals present in the media

More specific topics of discussion are listed below:
- Populism in conservative and left-wing tabloid and broadsheet newspapers
- Populisms in Europe
- Populisms in America (e.g., Canada, United States, Latin America)
- Populisms in Asia
- Populism and terrorism
- Masculinities and populism.

Within discourse contexts such as those listed above, we especially welcome papers which re-examine existing frameworks for critical discourse research or which apply new methodologies sourced from anywhere across the humanities, social and cognitive sciences including but without being limited to:
- Cognitive Linguistics
- Conversation and Discourse Analysis
- Corpus Linguistics
- Functional Linguistics
- Multimodality
- Political Science
- Pragmatics and Argumentation Theory
- Sociolinguistics
