Racism and Discourse in Latin America, Hardback Book

Racism and Discourse in Latin America Hardback

Edited by Teun A. van Dijk

Part of the Perspectives on a Multiracial America series

Hardback

Description

Racism and Discourse in Latin America investigates how public discourse is involved in the daily reproduction of racism in Latin America.

The essays examine political discourse, mass media discourse, textbooks and other forms of text, and talk by the white symbolic elites, looking at the ways these discourses express and confirm prejudices against indigenous people and against people from African descent.

The essays show that ethnic and racial inequality in Latin America continue to exacerbate the chasm between the rich and the poor, despite formal progress in the rights of minorities during the last decades. Teun A. van Dijk brings together a multidisciplinary team of linguists and social scientists from eight Latin American countries (Mexico, Guatemala, Colombia, Venezuela, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, and Peru), creating the first work in English that provides comprehensive insight into discursive racism across Latin America.
