Letter Writing and Language Change

Edited By Anita Auer, Daniel Schreier, and Richard J. Watts

This book "challenges the assumption that there is only one 'legitimate' and homogenous form of English or of any other language" and "supports the view of different/alternative histories of the English language and will appeal to readers who are skeptical of 'standard' language ideology."

Title: Analysing Identities in Discourse
Edited By: Rosana Dolón
Júlia Todolí
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=DAPSAC%2028
Series Title: Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture 28
Description:

The discursive construction of identity is often under the control of the
dominant forces in society and frequently results in forms of manipulation
and abuse. This awareness led to the celebration of the First
International Conference on CDA
(València 2004), where over
three-hundred academics working in the field of Critical Discourse
Analysis
became actively engaged in this important issue. The seven
studies included in this volume have been selected as representative of
those areas of human experience that have been given most intellectual
attention and considered to be in fact in need for critical unravelling.
Ethnic categorization in multicultural classrooms, patriotic discourse
construction in Chinese readers, the denial of Palestinian identity in
schoolbooks, the diverse constructions of European identities, Arabs
constructing themselves on the worldwide web, identity construction in
sexual assault trials, the representations of a dangerous ‘other’ in cases
of PLWHA, are the contextual perspectives embraced in this book to account
for forms of power abuse in the discursive construction of identities.
