We are pleased to announce the Third International Conference on Historical News Discourse (CHINED III), which follows up the inspiring conferences held in Florence (2004) and Zurich (2007). CHINED III will take place in Rostock, Germany, 18-19 May 2012.
This conference brings together international scholars of media discourse who present their latest work on historical and recent developments in news discourse. The contributions explore the
dynamics of genre conventions and focus particularly on the triggers, mechanisms and agents of change.
Adopting a broad perspective on news discourse, the programme covers more than 500 years of news discourse, print and broadcast news, prototypical genres and text types such as home news and crime reports, but also medical and scientific news, advertisements and fictional texts.
