内容説明

What can discourse analysis offer to the better understanding of power and change in South Africa? Discourse perspectives have emerged as a means of addressing the structuring effects of language. This book aims to show how such perspectives can provide a framework for critical intervention and radical political engagement. It focuses in turn on: the process of dismantling apartheid; the issue of gender and sexuality in popular culture; everyday talk and counselling practice; methodological issues arising from discourse analysis in South Africa; and finally on the wider context of using this kind of analysis for supporting change.

目次

  • Toward the end of apartheid
  • gender, power and sexuality
  • methodological innovations and directions
  • methodological and political reflections.

内容説明

This text makes a radical break with much conventional wisdom in postcolonial discourse to explore contemporary African identities in transition. The contributors look at the colonial legacy and how colonial identities are being reconstructed in the face of deepening social inequality across the continent. The book asks the question: is the postcolonial merely a neocolonial mystification, a Eurocentric product of Western scholarship in collusion with Western imperialism?
