    Proximization, prosumption and salience in digital discourse: on the interface of social media communicative dynamics and the spread of populist ideologies.Monika Kopytowska - 2022 - Critical Discourse Studies 19 (2):144-160.
    ABSTRACT The objective behind the present article is two-fold. Firstly, departing from the assumption that distance and salience dynamics are key to both functioning and impact of the media, we aim to present a new theoretical perspective on social media discourse understood as both product and process – Media Proximization Approach – and thus shed light on the exploratory potential of Social Media Critical Discourse Studies paradigm.

    “Rivers of blood”: Migration, fear and threat construction.Monika Kopytowska & Paul Chilton - 2018 - Lodz Papers in Pragmatics 14 (1):133-161.
    The article focuses on Enoch Powell’s “Rivers of Blood” speech and its recontextualisation 50 years later in view of the rising anti-immigration sentiment and Brexit campaign. Having discussed the dynamics of the threat construction process and its role in shaping public attitudes to migration and policies related to it across time and space, we proceed to analyse Powell’s speech in terms of lexical, grammatical, and discursive fear-inciting devices and strategies. While doing so we draw on the insights from neuroscientific research (...)

    Narrating hostility, challenging hostile narratives.Fabienne Baider & Monika Kopytowska - 2018 - Lodz Papers in Pragmatics 14 (1):1-24.
    This paper reports on a manual monitoring of online representations of LGBT persons in the Republic of Cyprus for the period April 2015–February 2016. The article contextualizes the prevalence of “hate speech” in online Greek Cypriot comments against LGBT individuals, and, more generally, against non-heterosexuals. Adopting a Foucauldian position vis-à-vis the social and discursive construction of sexuality, we outline, first, the socio-historical context with a focus on LGBT rights in the Republic of Cyprus and the nationalistic project construing sexualities. We (...)

    Unveiling the Other - the Pragmatics of Infosuasion.Monika Kopytowska - 2010 - Lodz Papers in Pragmatics 6 (2):249-282.
    Unveiling the Other - the Pragmatics of Infosuasion The present paper, starting from the assumption that television news is "the main source" and a key player in the democratic process explores the media-politics interface, along with the ideological conditioning and cultural embedding of the news discourse, understood both as a process and as a product. The objective behind it is threefold. Firstly, it is to examine the media mechanisms accounting for the process of ‘infosuasion’, i.e. persuading the viewers under the (...)

    Cultural cognition, effective communication, and security: Insights from intercultural trainings for law enforcement officers in Poland.Svetlana Kurteš, Julita Woźniak & Monika Kopytowska - 2022 - Lodz Papers in Pragmatics 18 (2):343-366.
    Economic migration, international mobility and refugee crises have brought about both risks and opportunities. Alongside the socio-economic and cultural potential to capitalize on they have generated challenges that need to be addressed. In such an increasingly globalized and diverse world, intercultural competences have become strategic resources underpinning the concept of democratic citizenship and social integration. The objectives of the present article are thus two-fold: firstly we want to explore the concept of cultural cognition and highlight the importance of intercultural and (...)
