Abstract

The changes from the socio-political life constantly bring about major transformations also encountered in contemporary communication and in the current ways of expression. More than ever, the clash with the dramatic events which have affected the whole world lately, imperatively demands us to ponder on words as a way to influence the actions and the power discourse or as a way to influence, to act upon and to control the others. Therefore, the current issue of our review, Interstudia, aims at a united effort to reflect upon the forms and ways through which discourse illustrates different degrees of power.

Argument

The changes from the socio-political life constantly bring about major transformations also encountered in contemporary communication and in the current ways of expression. More than ever, the clash with the dramatic events which have affected the whole world lately, imperatively demands us to ponder on words as a way to influence the actions and the power discourse or as a way to influence, to act upon and to control the others. Therefore, the current issue of our review, Interstudia, aims at a united effort to reflect upon the forms and ways through which discourse illustrates different degrees of power.

Being symbolically invested with a specific form of power also suggests being legitimate and gaining a certain discursive authority. No matter what disciplinary field we might choose (literary, political, legal, religious, advertising discourse), power is ubiquitous in the dissemination of institutional and ideological discourse or in the construction and negotiation of discourse relations. Its discursive markers can be found in the well-known speech acts, in verbal interactions, in images and non-verbal codes. It is a polyphonic, multicultural discourse in which the actants’ voices intertwine and are more effective when their initiators and strategies are hidden or dissimulated.

The authors are kindly asked to bring their contribution on the following areas:

  • Power, authority, and discursive efficiency.
  • Gender and power: instances of femininity through the discourse of power.
  • Implicature and symbolical power.
  • Power manifestations through electioneering, propagandism, manipulation, and disinformation.
  • Power paradigms in crisis situations.
