Linguistic Subfield(s): Discourse Analysis 

Meeting Description: 

Special Topic Session: 
Discursive Construction of the Middle East since the Mid-20th Century

This panel addresses some of the discourses and images that have
constructed Western, particularly American, perceptions of the Middle
East since the mid-20th century. Scholars, through a critical analysis
of a variety of texts, will illustrate how common representations of
the Middle East have persisted despite cultural, historical, and
political changes in the region. This panel aims to promote critical
awareness of the discursive forces affecting Western perceptions of
the Middle East and how these forces can help or hinder the
understanding of current events involving Western and Middle-Eastern
nations. 

Please send abstracts (300 words) via email or regular mail
