A new Wor(l)ds Lab study has been published as a chapter in the book Political Discourses at the Extremes: Expressions of Populism in Romance-Speaking Countries, edited by Françoise Sullet-Nylander, María Bernal, Christophe Premat, and Malin Roitman.
The title of our chapter is ¿Quién es el pueblo? La exclusión de las minorías en la campaña electoral 2015 en España (pdf) and it deals with the treatment of minorities in the electoral campaign.
The authors of this edited volume focus on the emergence of populist discourses, coming from movements or parties from Romance-speaking countries in Europe and in Latin America. By combining linguistics, social and political sciences in a discourse analytical approach, the sixteen papers enlighten the mechanisms behind populist discourses yielding from different socio-cultural and political contexts. The common denominator of the studies is the focus on the discursive and rhetorical characteristics of recently emerged movements of populism in both continents.
