Journal of Language and Pop Culture
The journal is open to contributions from all linguistic subfields that engage with pop culture and performed language, including sociolinguistics, pragmatics, stylistics, corpus linguistics, conversation analysis, (critical) discourse analysis, media linguistics, and applied linguistics/language education. Multimodal and interdisciplinary approaches are especially encouraged and, while English is typically seen as the primary language of pop culture, studies are invited on all languages.
