The Journal of Language and Politics (JLP) represents an interdisciplinary and critical forum for analysing and discussing the various dimensions in the interplay between language and politics. It locates at the intersection of several social science disciplines including communication and media research, linguistics, discourse studies, political science, political sociology or political psychology. It focuses mainly on the empirically-founded research on the role of language and wider communication in all social processes and dynamics that can be deemed as political. Its focus is therefore not limited to the ’institutional’ field of politics or to the traditional channels of political communication but extends to a wide range of social fields, actions and media (incl. traditional and online) where political and politicised ideas are linguistically and discursively constructed and communicated.

Articles submitted to JLP should bring together social theory, sociological concepts, political theories, and in-depth, empirical, communication- and language-oriented analysis. They have to be problem-oriented and rely on well-informed contemporary as well as historical contextualisation of the analysed social and political dynamics. Methodologies can be qualitative, quantitative or mixed, but must in any case be systematic and anchored in relevant social science disciplines. They may focus on various dimensions of political communication in general and of political language/discourse in particular.

The Journal of Language and Politics welcomes review papers of any research monograph or edited volume which takes a critical and analytical approach to the study of language and politics, as broadly conceived above.

The Journal of Language and Politics publishes its articles Online First.
