About Michal Krzyzanowski

Michał Krzyżanowski (MA, PhD, Dr. Habil.) is since 2013 the Chair in Media and Communication Studies at Örebro University, Sweden. He also holds a research appointment as a Chair in Communication & Media at the University of Liverpool, UK, and in 2018-19 he is also Albert Bonnier Jr. Guest Professor in Media Studies at the Department of Journalism, Media & Communication, Stockholm University, Sweden.

Michał  is one of the leading and key internationally acclaimed experts in critical discourse studies. His key areas of interest are in political, policy and organisational communication as well as in media and journalism. He is particularly known for his work on right-wing populism, politics of exclusion, and anti-immigration rhetoric as well as for his research on neoliberal discourses and dynamics of democracy in the context of socio-political transformations. He is also widely recognised for his work on methodological innovations in qualitative research, including discourse-ethnographic analysis of organisational and journalistic practices or discourse-conceptual analysis of dynamics of policy and political discourse.

Michał's research is strongly interdisciplinary and critical in nature. It contributes to, inter alia, communication and media studies, political research, sociology, immigration studies, linguistics and European studies. His work links spotlight on international contexts (e.g. EU) with that on national milieus (UK, Austria, Poland or Sweden) while often applying a comparative perspective.

Michał is the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Language and Politics, a leading international and interdisciplinary journal specialised in critical analysis of political communication, media discourse & public language. He is also a co-editor of the book series Bloomsbury Advances in Critical Discourse Studies. He sits on a number of editorial boards including in such leading journals as, inter alia Critical Discourse Studies  or Social Semiotics or such transdisciplinary book series as DATA Browser

Michał is a regular keynote and plenary speaker at major conferences and symposia in communication, media and political discourse studies in Europe and beyond. He also holds frequent guest lectures and doctoral training workshops at key academic institutions in Europe and the USA. For a number of years, he has also been a core faculty member at the Summer Schools in Methods and Techniques of the European Consortium for Political Research (ECPR) where he teaches very popular courses on Analysing Discourse & Politics attended by PhDs and junior scholars from across the world.

Michał has extensive experience in external engagements incl. impact-oriented or knowledge-exchange work. He has collaborated extensively on the outreach and practice-driven application of his research with national and international media (e.g. Financial Times, London; Tok FM, Warsaw), with politics & policy-makers (e.g. The European Commission, The European Parliament or The European Central Bank) and with the international non-governmental sector (e.g. Institute for Public Affairs, Warsaw; Hrant Dink Foundation & Hate Speech Projects, Istanbul, etc.). 

Michał also acts regularly as an expert for various European research councils incl. the Economic and Social Research Council (UK); National Programme for the Research in Humanities & National Science Centre (Poland), National Research Foundation (South Africa); or Volkswagen Stiftung (Germany). He is also a recurrent panel member at the Norwegian Research Council (Norway).
