Description The panel seeks to address diverse conflict-related phenomena such as disagreements, arguments, quarrels and other kinds of communicative disunities and antagonistic interactions including bullying, trolling and hate speech. We look for contributions preferably addressing these aspects in various kinds of technology-mediated communication, with data coming from public media (such as talk shows, online reader comments, discussion forums) as well as social media (e.g. Facebook, Instagram) and, possibly, also other domains. The papers are expected to engage the issues from the perspectives of (media) discourse analysis, sociolinguistics and interactional pragmatics, discussing synchronic and potentially also diachronic aspects of conflict-based and conflict-related interactions in relation to such concepts as face, impoliteness, aggression, categorization, etc.
