Title: Discursive Constructions of Identity in European Politics
Edited By: Richard Mole
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=278188
Series Title: Language and Globalization
Description:

Sociolinguists and discourse analysts have long been aware of the fact that
language does not simply describe a pre-existing reality but is rather the
medium through which the social world is created and given meaning. While
other branches of learning have been slow to take this on board, there is
nevertheless a growing awareness of the importance of discourse in the
creation of identities and the legitimisation of social structures and
moral and political hierarchies. Discursive Constructions of Identity in
European Politics brings together specialists from critical discourse
analysis and critical approaches to communications, history, literature,
media, sociology, politics and International Relations to discuss the
discursive construction of identities and analyse how specific identity
discourses condition and constrain knowledge and action with regard to
various socio-political issues in Europe.
