The thematic areas within which national and international authors are invited to express their views are as follows:

  1. Research on the relation between language and action, discourse and power: theoretical linguistics (textual and discursive analysis, vocabulary, syntax, utterance, pragmatics, cohesion elements, time and temporality, metadiscursive operations, discourse semiotics);
  2. The identification and analysis of meaning construction strategies in institutional spaces (the identification of argumentative markers in social discourse, the analysis of mass-media and news discourse, of advertising and marketing discourse, of public relations discourse and of the public sphere);
  3. The study of the identity/alterity ratio – linguistic and cultural perspectives (privacy and confession, subjectivity, polyphony, ethos construction, the role of emotional disclosure, the informational analysis and treatment of languages);
  4. The study of cultural and linguistic interferences (Romanian/French/English), pedagogical and didactic perspectives on languages (understanding and coping with differences in the pedagogical act);
  5. The search of the discursive dimensions of identity, integration and identity tokens (both cultural and linguistic), the role of the collective imaginary, the analysis of the relations between local, national and European paradigms;
  6. Research on specialized discourse (in areas like business, law, technique, medicine, mass-media, advertising)
  7. Research on interactional mechanisms (conversational structures in the social space, politeness as connector in interpersonal relations);
  8. Research on formal languages and on computerized interpretation;
  9. The study of non-verbal practices – images, photos, posters, dances;
  10. The study of the relations between ideology, morality and literature, between collective mentality and literary imaginary systems.

The generous space of reflection proposed by the Interstudia review is doubled by its exigent standards in the selection of articles, in terms of their scientific rigour, originality and accuracy.
