Title: Discourse and Transformation in Central and Eastern Europe
URL: http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=278712
Series Title: Language and Globalization
Description:

This interdisciplinary volume explores the discursive construction of
post-1989 social change in Central and Eastern Europe. Encompassing a set
of national case studies on countries such as Czech Republic, former
East-Germany, Latvia, Poland, Romania, Russia, Slovenia or other Balkan
states, the volume explores processes of post-communist transformation from
the point of view of accelerating and unique dynamics of linguistic and
discursive practices. Highlighting the micro-macro link, those practices
are examined within – as well as at the cross-section of – the public
domain (in politics, media, religion or civil society) and the private
sphere (within individual experiences of post-communism). Providing
in-depth, systematic analysis of discourse in different situations,
contributions to the volume analyse diverse forms of social, political,
cultural, economic or institutional transformation in post-communist
contexts. The analysis points to several differences and similarities
between ways in which discourse influences the unprecedented social change
across Central and Eastern Europe.
