Kurdish Identity Discourse and New Media

Kurdish Identity Discourse and New Media By Jaffer Sheyholislami
Informed by the interdisciplinary approach of Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) and theories of identity, nation, and media, the study investigates the ways Kurds, the world’s largest stateless nation, use satellite television and Internet to construct their identities. This book examines the complex interrelationships between ethno-national identities, discourses, and new media. Not only offers the first study of discursive constructions of Kurdish identity in the new media, this book also the first CDA informed comparative study of the contents of the two media. The study pushes the boundaries of the growing area of studies of identity, nationalism and transnationalism, discourse studies, minority language, and digital media.
Since picking up Kurdish Identity Discourse and New Media, I can’t seem to stop reading it!…I love her style of writing and more importantly you will identify with her struggle. I would recommend this book to all.
I highly recommend Kurdish Identity Discourse and New Media. All in a good book not regretting having read it.
