Journal edited by Professor Pilar Blitvich celebrates 10th anniversary.
In July 2023, The Journal of Language Aggression and Conflict (JLAC) celebrated its 10th anniversary at the 18th International Pragmatics Conference. JLAC, published by John Benjamins (Amsterdam), was founded in 2012 and launched in 2013. English faculty member, Professor Pilar Blitvich, was a founding editor of JLAC and has served, along with Professor Maria Sifianou (National and Kapodistrian University of Athens), as co-editor-in-chief since the journal’s inception.
The expert panel, organized by JLAC’s co-editors-in-chief, and titled The language of conflict and aggression in post-digital societies, included 14 different sessions presented by 17 scholars from diverse countries, some of JLAC’s editorial board members among them.
After the conclusion of the panel, participants and other editorial board members attending IPrA gathered for a drink to celebrate JLAC’s 10 years and its most recent SCOPUS ranking that placed JLAC at number 37 out of 1,100 linguistics journals with a 4.8 cite score.
