The Language of Fake News

Call for Papers

Abstract deadline:          30 September 2022
Conference date:             16 May 2023


In association with Royal Holloway University of London and the IMLR, University of London

Visit the Conference website

Confirmed keynote speaker: Jo Fox, Pro Vice-Chancellor Research and Engagement, and Dean of the School of Advanced Study, University of London


This conference will focus on the linguistic evolution of fake news from the dawn of journalism to today. It will offer insights on the dissemination and reception of fake news by addressing an important - yet overlooked - research question: what role does language play in the production and proliferation of fake news?

We invite papers that address this question from different angles, investigating:


● The register, style, and rhetoric of fake news
● Fake news in translation
● The relationship between political and propagandistic language and fake news
● The linguistic variations between rumours and fake news
● The historical evolution of the languages of fake news
● The visual languages of fake news
● The impact of ‘media revolutions’ on the languages of fake news


Papers exploring different historical periods and geographical regions are highly encouraged, as well as papers providing a transmedial and interdisciplinary perspective. We especially welcome contributions by Early Career Researchers, from both universities and the cultural heritage sector.

You can propose individual papers or a panel. If proposing a panel, please ensure a balance of contributions by ECRs, senior scholars, and GLAM researchers (or other non-academic researchers).

For individual contributions, please send an abstract (200 words) and a short biographical note (100 words); for panels, please send a general description of the panel (100 words), all abstracts (200 words each), and a short biographical note for each speaker (100 words), to the organiser: by September 30, 2022. 

Please indicate whether you wish to present online or in person.
