Given the intensification of ethnonationalist discursive practices in digital platforms, among which the imageboard 4chan has a leading role, the aim of this project is to articulate both the Discourse-Historical Approach of the Critical Discourse Analysis and the Theory of Argumentation to examine the argumentative forms of legitimization and critique of theses with ethnonationalist background on the board International (/int/) of 4chan, in order to understand both the structuring of such discursivity and the strategies of persuasion and of justificatory consistency that characterize the debate in the aforementioned platform.
