Abstract:

This collection of critical essays, originally published in "Pragmatics andSociety" 1:2 (2010), discusses how normative biases that shape our relationto the world are constructed through discursive practice in media discourse.The intertextual perspective it adopts is crucial for our understanding of howmedia representations of speakers and languages shape many of ourpreconceptions of others.

Mediatization is inherently intertextual; the very nature of this processinvolves extracting the speech behavior of particular speakers or groups froma highly specific context and refracting and reshaping it to be inserted inanother stream of representation. The notion of intertextuality becomes auseful concept for the linguistic anthropological study of media discourse inthe context of modernity, as it provides us with a tool for exploring thesemiotic processes that underlie the way in which the media negotiate andreinscribe the complex relationships of identity that characterize late modernsubjecthood.
