Dis­cours­es of the Arab rev­o­lu­tions in media and pol­i­tics
BuchcoverDraw­ing on approach­es from crit­i­cal dis­course analy­sis, cor­pus lin­guis­tics, and cog­ni­tive lin­guis­tics, this book crit­i­cal­ly exam­ines metaphor­i­cal lan­guage used in glob­al media cov­er­age and polit­i­cal state­ments on the events of the Arab Spring.
The vol­ume begins by sum­maris­ing key events of the Arab Spring, trac­ing the devel­op­ment of protests from Tunisia and Egypt to Libya and Syr­ia as well as the wider impact on the region. Ull­mann builds on this foun­da­tion to lay out the the­o­ret­i­cal frame­works to be applied to an exten­sive cor­pus of nat­ur­al lan­guage and actu­al dis­course high­light­ing West­ern, Mid­dle East­ern, and North African per­spec­tives which inte­grate the­o­ret­i­cal work on metaphor, blend­ing the­o­ry, and seman­tic prosodies. Method­olog­i­cal con­sid­er­a­tions on cor­pus selec­tion and dif­fer­ent con­cep­tu­al­i­sa­tions of pol­i­tics and mass media, gen­er­al­ly and across coun­tries, are dis­cussed, with the final chap­ters out­lin­ing the over­ar­ch­ing themes across metaphors in the cor­pus and how these metaphors were ulti­mate­ly framed in the mass media and polit­i­cal land­scape.
This book will be of par­tic­u­lar inter­est to stu­dents and schol­ars inter­est­ed in crit­i­cal dis­course analy­sis, lan­guage and pol­i­tics, and cor­pus lin­guis­tics.
