This is a gentle reminder of the CFP on The Rhetoric of Otherness for the journal Rhetoric & Communications. This special issue invites authors to explore old and new forms of Otherness and Othering in various texts such as literary, journalistic, political speeches, new media, social media, visual texts, and films, by focusing on the role of linguistic, rhetoric, and discourse strategies (e.g. argumentation, figure of speech, discourse elements, visual composition, etc.) in the representation, construction or deconstruction of us/them, sameness/difference in order to disclose, denounce, criticise, or unpack emotions, thoughts, behaviours that lead to discrimination, prejudice, stereotypes, stigma, and exclusion among others. We welcome contributions that are either original research (qualitative/quantitative methods), systematic review, or theoretical articles.
The deadline has been extended to Dec. 31st., 2021.
