Routledge Focus on (Im)politeness

About the Series

The Routledge Focus on (Im)politeness spotlights concise volumes of cutting-edge research on (im)politeness by both up-and-coming and established scholars, with an emphasis on developing and fostering interdisciplinary synergies. Inter/multidisciplinarity is seen as key to advancing the study and understanding of such complex phenomena.

Topics include, among others, new perspectives on foundational issues, the application of methodological developments to varied sets of data, multimodality and (im)politeness, ethical issues in researching (im)politeness, (im)politeness in large corpora and quantitative methodologies, teaching and acquiring (im)politeness, cognitive approaches to (im)politeness, historical perspectives on (im)politeness phenomena, and im/politeness across language and cultures. The contributions to the series should be in the range of 20,000 to 30,000 words

This innovative series will appeal to students, scholars and practitioners interested in (im)politeness, pragmatics, sociolinguistics, linguistic anthropology, media studies, communication and (critical) discourse analysis.
