Financial communication: Narrative and argument in the pursuit of sustainable trust – Introduction to the Thematic Section
In the emerging field of financial communication, interdisciplinary research based on the analysis of texts and discourse is gaining a prominent role. Bridging quantitative and qualitative approaches and covering financial disclosures, investor relations, business and financial media, as well as the communication of financial intermediaries and regulators, discourse-based studies of financial communication are becoming a unique interdisciplinary crossroads of research developed in accounting, applied linguistics, corporate communication, finance, rhetoric, sociology and natural language processing. This is the main goal of this Thematic Section published in Studies in Communication Sciences and following the second edition of the “Discourse Approaches to Financial Communication” (DAFC) conference held in Lugano in the summer 2017.
