Polyculturalism and Discourse

£27.50

Series: At the Interface / Probing the Boundaries, Volume: 37
Volume Editors: Anja Schwarz and Russell West-Pavlov

This volume gathers together research by ten scholars engaging with multicultural discourse in Australia and Germany. The term ‘polyculturalism’ rather than ‘multiculturalism’ is employed deliberately to re-open a space in which the workings of discourse on culturally diverse societies, both as archive or practice, and as intervention, can be considered in greater depth. The inter-cultural perspective and wide range of disciplinary affiliations exhibited by the essays in this volume contribute to this goal: whereas the majority of discourse analytical work addresses the diversity of speaking positions, as well as the arbitrariness of ascribed meanings, within a historical framework delimited by national boundaries and disciplinary boundaries, the texts collected here transgress this perspective in working comparatively between Australia and Germany.
