Book Information


Title: Discourse and International Relations
Edited By: U. Dagmar Scheu Lottgen
José Saura Sánchez

This book assembles a selection of essays on Discourse and Intercultural
Relations presented at Murcia University in September 2004. After the
recent outburst of the East-West conflict intercultural relations and the
challenges embedded in intercultural communication are of increasing
importance. This compilation unravels these topics from the point of view
of Discourse Analysis and Cultural Studies. The main aim is to highlight
the discursive strategies employed by the dominant political elite in a
variety of contexts to maintain and reinforce their power position in
intercultural encounters. The paramount concern is, therefore, to reflect
upon the interrelations between language, power and discourse (in the
Foucaultian sense).

Within a broad theoretical framework, the contributions are divided into
two main parts. Part I includes papers which work within the field of
Critical Discourse Studies and explore ideological issues, such as the
concept of 'otherness', identity, race and the mass media's manipulation of
public opinion. Part II adopts a more culturally based stance covering
topics, such as intercultural competence, hybridity, intercultural
education etc.
