Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture

Ruth WodakGreg Myers, and Johann Unger are general editors for the book series Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture (DAPSAC) published by John Benjamins.

The editors invite contributions that investigate political, social and cultural processes from a linguistic/discourse-analytic point of view. The aim is to publish monographs and edited volumes which combine language-based approaches with disciplines concerned essentially with human interaction - disciplines such as political science, international relations, social psychology, social anthropology, sociology, economics, and gender studies. More than 50 books have been published since the establishment of the series in 2002. The most recent book in the series is Analyzing Genres in Political Communication: Theory and practice, edited by Piotr Cap and Urszula Okulska.
