Book chapter

Conceptualization of migration during Moscow mayor campaign in 2013

P. 422-430.

This work is based upon  the critical discourse studies [Van Dijk 2008] and analyses the corpus of programs by candidates for mayor officially published during the latest electoral campaign in Moscow.  The topic is  important for modern sociolinguistics as well as political linguistics because the analysis of  this segment of political discourse vividly shows the models of tackling the hard issue of immigration which became one of the central disputable points during that campaign. The corpus of electoral programs shows the official position of the candidates worked out by spin doctors and other consultants. They represent well-thought theses rather than  spontaneuos speech, that is why it is important to analyze how immigration topic is described consciously, in written speech.
