Book Information

   

Title: The Discourse of Europe
Subtitle: Talk and text in everyday life
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=DAPSAC%2026
Series Title: Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture 26
Description:

In this volume we approach the question of what it is to be European by
considering the way in which citizens talk about their everyday lives, as
they are perceived against the background of Europe and European issues.
Hence, the volume will offer insights into the rarely glimpsed micro
political world of ordinary talk and explore the way in which such talk in
social interaction and other spheres might help us understand what Europe
means to a range of its citizens. Using a range of broadly discursive
approaches we will touch on, inter alia, issues of identity, youth,
borders, ethnicity, local politics, and minority languages. In the end, we
suggest, it is a common sense view of pragmatic utility that centres what
it is to be European, and this is something which is continually fluid and
shifting within ever changing social, historical and political circumstances.
