Re/Reading the Past: Critical and Functional Perspectives on Time and Value (Discourse Approaches to Politics, Society and Culture, 8)

 
11

This volume is concerned with the discourse of history, from the complementary perspectives of Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) and Systematic Functional Linguistics (SFL) - covering a range of discourse about the past, including discourses of the academic discipline of history. It deals with the construction of time and value in a post-colonial (and post-WWII) world where discourses of or about history and the past are central to on-going processes of reconciliation, debates on war crimes and restitution. It also brings to this analysis two leading analytical paradigms (CDA/SFL) as far as critical linguistic interpretation is concerned. The book also fills an important gap in register analysis; compared with the analysis of science discourse for example, work on historical discourse is relatively diffuse.
