Book Information

   

Title: Deutsche Sprache und Kolonialismus
Subtitle: Aspekte der nationalen Kommunikation 1884-1919
Edited By: Ingo H Warnke
URL: http://degruyter.de/cont/fb/sk/detailEn.cfm?id=IS-9783110200379-1
Description:

The volume is concerned with Imperial Germany's identity as a colonial
power from the perspectives of language history and discourse analysis. The
formation of identity as a colonising power cannot be separated from the
establishment of particular forms of communication. It is principally
through linguistic action that a sense of communal equality is created.
Thus the discursive, ideological and imagined identity as a colonial power
manifests itself as a substantial field in national communication between
1884/85 and 1919. The articles in the volume are designed to make a
fundamental contribution to the linguistic history of German colonialism.
