Contesting Europe's Eastern Rim: cultural identities in public discourse

Ljiljana Šarić (Editor), Andreas Musolff (Editor), Stefan Manz (Editor), Ingrid Hudabiunigg (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportScholarly edition


Since 1989, Europe's eastern rim has been in constant flux. This collection focuses on how political and economic transformations have triggered redefinitions of cultural identity. Using discursive modes of identity construction (deconstruction, reconstruction, reformulation, and invention) the book focuses on the creation of opposition to old and new outsidersA" and insidersA" in Europe. The linguistic study of discourse elements in connection with an exploration of the significance of metaphors in anchoring individual and collective identity is innovative and allows for a unique analysis of public discourse in Europe.
