    5th International Language in the Media Conference

    Queen Mary, University of London

    This is the fifth in a biennial series of international conferences organized around the role of the media in relation to the representation, construction and production of language.

    The primary theme of the 2013 conference will be on journalism – in its many historical and contemporary manifestations – and its redefinition in the face of social media and established practice, taking its cue from the confluence of historic Fleet Street and new media and digital innovation in London.

    Also on the agenda: A plenary panel of active journalists and linguists talking about what has changed in journalism and what remains the same, with an eye to inspiring future research/ers and providing new directions for investigation of language in the media.

    Plenary speakers

    Allan Bell (Auckland University of Technology, NZ)
    Martin Conboy (University of Sheffield, UK)
    Helen Kelly-Holmes (University of Limerick, Ireland)
    Daniel Perrin (Zurich University of Applied Sciences, Switzerland)
