Book review: Salomi Boukala. “European identity and the representation of Islam in the mainstream press: Argumentation and media discourse”
In her book European identity and the representation of Islam in the mainstream press: Argumentation and media discourse, Salomi Boukala offers us a thoroughly interdisciplinary and extremely timely scrutiny of print media communication in times of profound crises in Europe. Boukala interweaves Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) and Argumentation theory, employing also notions and principles coming from the fields of Political Sciences, Anthropology, (Cultural) Political Economy. In particular, the author examines how “specific [European] newspapers with opposite ideological background [...] construct the European supranational identity via references to the EU and the representation of Islam as a common, European ‘Other’” (p. 7).
