Biography

Professor Michał Krzyżanowski holds the Chair in Media & Communications at Uppsala University, where he is Deputy Head of the School of Informatics & Media as well as Director of Research of the UU Centre for Multidisciplinary Studies of Racism. He is known internationally for interdisciplinary work on critical discourse studies of communication, media and social change with special focus on discourses of crisis, inequality, discrimination and exclusion.

Following his earlier appointments at the Universities of Lancaster and Aberdeen in the UK as well as at the University of Vienna, Austria, he moved to Uppsala in 2020 after holding a number of academic leadership positions as, inter alia, Head of Department, Chair in Communication and Media as well as funding Director of the Research Centre ‘Discourse & Society’ (now 'Discourse, Data & Society') at the University of Liverpool, UK, or as Chair and Head of Subject in Media in Communications as well as Head of the Research Group ‘Discourse, Communication & Media (DCM)’ at Örebro University, Sweden. He previously also held several prestigious visiting and research appointments: as Alfred Bonnier Jr. Guest Professor in Journalism and Mass Communication at Stockholm University, Sweden, or as a Research Chair in Communications and Media at the University of Liverpool, UK.

Michał is one of the leading international scholars working on critical discourse studies of communication, media and social change with special focus on discourses, politics and practices of discrimination, exclusion and social inequality and their recontextualization and normalisation in/via media and the public sphere. His research focuses on political discourse, digital & traditional media and journalism as well as on policy and organisation communication. As a renown expert in qualitative and mixed-method research, Michał works on methodological combinations of critical discourse studies with, inter alia, conceptual analysis, corpus linguistics or ethnography and their application in linguistics, communication analysis and wider social and political research.

For over a decade, Michał has been the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Language and Politics which under his leadership has become one of the key international, interdisciplinary and critical fora for analysing discourse and communication in the processes of contemporary social and political change. He is also a co-editor of the book series Bloomsbury Advances in Critical Discourse Studies and sits on a number of editorial boards including of Critical Discourse Studies, Discourse & Society, Language in Society or Social Semiotics high impact journals, or DATA Browser book series.
