Constituting Cultural Difference Through Discourse

Edited by:

September 2000 | 344 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
Mary Jane Collier brings together essays that address issues such as how culture and discourse are related, and how people with varied cultural identities draw their boundaries and create distinctiveness through their communication with one another, and presents timely and relevant research on cultural difference as a contemporary social problem. The contributors to this volume represent a variety of cultural groups, and their discussions reflect a diverse array of perspectives on discourse analysis.
