Media, Wars and Identities - Part Two
Dupret B., Nekvapil J., Leudar I.

Published: 2008

The contributions to the second part of this two-part issue of Ethnographic Studies focus on the practices of public discourse pertinent to conflicts and identities in the Arab and Muslim world. They all take an ethnomethodological stance, which reveals the illusionary character of any ‘culturalist' interpretation of conflicts related to the Middle-East and Islam of the kind proposed, for example, by Huntington. It instead points to the close association of the categorization processes, the audiences toward which speeches are oriented, and the media used.
