Abstract:

This volume offers interdisciplinary perspectives on discourses in one
national context of post-communist transformation. Proposing a macro-micro
approach to discourse analysis and transformation, it examines a spectrum
of topics including Polish history, with its 'interpreters'; changes in
political bodies and the media, policies of the Catholic Church and the
Institute of National Remembrance; xenophobia and anti-Semitism, with the
emergence of unemployment and homelessness; experiences of new gender
relations and migrations. In effect, drawing upon unique sets of data, the
book shows how post-communist transformation can be understood through
analyses of the changing public and private discourses. It shows Polish
post-communism as a fragile and uneasy transformation, with people and
institutions struggling to make sense of it and of life within it. The
volume will be of interest to a broad range of social scientists: discourse
analysts, sociologists, modern historians and political scientists, as well
as to the informed lay public.

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis
