Vol. 12 No. 1 (2019): MeCCSA PGN 2018 Conference: Contemporary News Discourse Around the Globe
The papers presented in this special issue were submitted as part of the Best Paper competition at MeCCSA’s Postgraduate Network conference in 2018. The conference took place on 5th and 6th July 2018 at Canterbury Christ Church University and was organised by Nicholas Furze, Aurora Patera and Emma Kaylee Graves. As there were several high-quality papers submitted for the competition, it was decided that the 2018 conference would have two special issues in Networking Knowledge, instead of the usual one. This issue therefore compliments the previous issue of the journal: MeCCSA Postgraduate Network 2018 Conference Special Issue: Communities and the Media Around the Globe. While the first special issue had a very broad scope in terms of the topics covered by the authors, the current special issue has a more specialised focus on analyses of news discourse.
