Greece in Crisis

by Hatzidaki / Goutsos Published by John Benjamins

Published 2017.

Since its onset the Greek crisis has triggered a veritable explosion in the production of relevant text and talk. This volume offers an insider's view of the discursive manifestations of the crisis, focusing on discourses in the Greek language and by Greek social actors. The papers collected investigate the diverse ways in which the crisis has been communicated to the public by domestic policymakers or debated by elite, non-elite and resistant participants. Crisis discourses are also examined in the light of the rise of neo-nationalism and the extreme Right in both Greece and Cyprus. All contributions seek to meaningfully combine critical discourse and corpus linguistics perspectives for a better understanding of the Greek crisis as a socio-economic episode and as a discourse construct. Discourse-driven quantification complements corpus-driven quantification in the critical examination of textual data as diverse as official government communications, party leader speeches, newspaper articles, public assembly resolutions, song lyrics, social media commentary and terrorist proclamations.
