Studies in Language and Capitalism is a peer-reviewed online journal that seeks to promote and freely distribute interdisciplinary critical inquiries into the language and meaning of contemporary capitalism and the links between economic, social and linguistic change in the world around us. The journal is a project of the LNC group listserv and stems from our shared concern regarding the global spread of new economic ideologies and specifically the way that neoliberals attempt to naturalise, and hence entrench, social, political and economic inequalities. It is our hope that various groups of people will use and contribute to the journal, including: researchers analysing language in use, activists in social movements who see language use as part of their concerns, journalists concerned with language and rhetoric, and social researchers in other fields where the politics of language use is an issue.
