About this book

This edited collection brings together the latest research on discourse and society in Latin America and Caribbean in one volume. Employing cross-cutting approaches to current political, institutional and media discourses, it bridges existing theoretical and analytical gaps between the socio-political macro issues and the micro aspects of linguistic analysis to provide fresh insights that deconstruct the complex socio-political power dynamics in Latin America and the Caribbean. Across eight chapters this volume explores the regions’ thorny relationship with their complex histories of colonialism and slavery as well as the ongoing, multifaceted constructions of hegemonic and counter-hegemonic identities at the individual, regional and national levels. In doing so, it demonstrates the unique and rich particularities of these regions and why it is that they challenge many conventional dogmas and methods across the Social Sciences. This book will be of particular interest to scholars working in Discourse Studies, Sociology, Politics, Anthropology and Latin American and Caribbean Studies.

Reviews

“The editors and the publisher of this timely volume should be congratulated for their initiative to introduce to the international community of discourse studies these original contributions from Latin America and the Caribbean. Latin America in particular, has been among the most active regions of discourse studies in the world, having established its first international association of discourse studies as early as 1995. The transdisciplinary studies collected here offer unique perspectives combining many types of discourse analysis, e.g., multimodal and corpus linguistic approaches, with critical social and cultural analyses, e.g. of democracy after dictatorships, slavery, poverty, (post)colonialism, national identity, (anti)racism, migration, peace processes, student movements, populism, creolization and ethnic minority resistance, among many other relevant topics. These contributions uniquely show how sophisticated analyses of text and talk offer advanced qualitative methods, still largely ignored in the social sciences, for the study of social issues.” (Teun A. van Dijk, Pompeu Fabra University and Centre of Discourse Studies, Barcelona, Spain)
