Description

This is the sixth international conference on historical news discourse (CHINED). The CHINED VI conference will be held on 21-23 June 2017 at The University of Sheffield, UK.

The varieties of genre within news language have enabled it to retain a vitality which has kept readers interested in consuming the products of printed news for centuries. Beyond providing variety of representation, genre is a highly social, even ideological category. It is an integral aspect of the compact between writer and reader of news. Readers not only know what to expect within different news genres but beyond this they are enabled to locate themselves within a wide range of social and political contexts. Different generic strategies within news discourse draw particular social groups into historically specific styles of representation. Contributions are therefore invited which explore the specific linguistic construction of genre in news language 1650 – 1945.
