This group studies discursive constructions of power relations, politics in the popular press, outsiders and the nation from historical and contemporary perspectives. It explores questions at different levels of granularity reaching a wide range of language-related phenomena. These range from basic aspects of communication and verbal behaviour to diverse styles and presentational contexts of journalism, and from specific stylistic aspects of journalism such as metaphor to quantifiable characteristics of written narrative.
