Drawing from the vast and ever-increasing textual (including visual) production regarding the Brexit referendum and its aftermath, Massimiliano Demata will analyse the most important discourse topics and strategies underlying the political and media narratives around Brexit in the light of a critical approach to discourse analysis.
Prof. Massimiliano Demata is Associate Professor of English Linguistics at the Department of Cultures, Politics and Society of the University of Turin, Italy. He is originally an Oxford graduate and was a Fulbright Scholar at Yale and Indiana University. In 2019-20 he was a visiting professor at Saarland University with a fellowship awarded by DAAD. His main specialisation is Critical Discourse Analysis, focusing specifically on the use of language for ideological purposes in politics and the media in the UK and the USA.
