Applying Systemic Functional Linguistics to Meet the Challenge of Change
Situated in a constantly changing world, socio-semiotic research needs to reflect the nature of “change”. The Covid-19 pandemic has significantly impacted how we communicate, how we affiliate and bond as well as how we make sense of the goings-on surrounding us. Volatile political situations around the world cause numerous crises, especially those related to immigrants, emigrants, and refugees. The emergence of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and large language models such as ChatGPT has impacted the ways human interacts with the computer; this raises further questions in application terms such as content creation, teaching and learning, as well as ethical and moral concerns. In light of these ever-changing situations, Applying Systemic Functional Linguistics to Meet the Challenge of Change, Volumes One and Two, offers a unique contribution to understanding the way we undertake systemic functional linguistic (SFL) research pertinent to the latest and ongoing issues happening around the world. The topical areas range from its applications under the Covid-19 pandemic and post-pandemic times, education, and healthcare communication, and examining the discourses related to international political conflicts, sustainability and Artificial Intelligence/Chat GPT.
Volume One and Volume Two will be sold individually and as a set
