Abstract:

This new book extends Teun A. van Dijk's earlier research on discursive
racism to the Latin world. He presents a first inventory of elite discourse
and racism in Spain and Latin America by examining discursive reactions in
Spain to recent immigration, as well as age-old racism and ethnicism in
text and talk in Latin America (especially Mexico, Brazil, Argentina and
Chile). Through careful analysis of the media, political discourse,
textbooks and other public discourses in these countries he shows that
discursive euro-racism is ubiquitous also in countries outside Europe.
Spain reproduces, but as yet in a less radical way, the kind of racist
discourse we find elsewhere in Western Europe. In Latin America, ethnicism
and racism against the indigenous peoples and against Afrolatins has
prevailed in elite discourse since colonialism and slavery.
This is the first integrated study of discursive racism in the Latin world
and provides a useful framework for similar research.
