Title: Representations and Othering in Discourse
Subtitle: The construction of Turkey in the EU context
Written By: Beyza Ç. Tekin
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=DAPSAC%2039
Series Title: Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture 39
Description:

This volume examines the construction of Turkey's possible European Union
accession in French political discourse. In today's France, heated debates
regarding Turkey's EU membership are turning into an essential part of
European identity formation. Once again, the 'Turkish Other' functions as a
mirror for defining not only the 'European Self', but also European values. By
providing a genuine and multi-disciplinary approach for studying the Otherness
attributed to Turkey, this book contributes to our understanding of the
Self/Other
nexus in International Relations. Within a Critical Discourse Analysis
framework,
this study explores the socio-historical basis of the construction of Turkey's
Otherness in an attempt to identify the processes through which past memories,
representations, images and fantasies regarding Turkey are inserted into the
French social imaginary. Focusing on these significations, which are
(re)produced and become manifest through language, this book strives to
uncover the link between discourse and political action.
