Item description for Language & Peace (War & Peace) by SCHAFFNER...
Language and Peace demonstrates how critical discourse analysis can elucidate the relationship between language and peace. It provides a view on the notion of peace put forth by peace researchers in the last two decades, namely that peace includes not only the absence of war or physical violence but also the absence of structural violence. Approaching the topic from various perspectives, Language and Peace argues that language is a factor to be considered together with social and economic factors in any examination of the social conditions and institutions that prevent the achievement of a comprehensive peace. It illustrates a framework of concepts and methodologies that can guide future linguistic research in this area and also calls for foreign language, second language and peace educators to include critical linguistic education into their curricula and describes an approach for doing so.
