MODERN FORMS OF PREJUDICE. DISCURSIVE PSYCHOLOGICAL PERSPECTIVE
Languages of publication
The article examines the theory and methods of analysing discursive forms of prejudice. Contemporary forms of prejudice are usually sensitive to the norms of political correctness. This is the reason why traditional measures of prejudice do not detect real attitudes. This article shows different approach, based on linguistics (van Dijk's critical discourse analysis, CDA), pragmatics (discriminatory speech acts), critical psychology (discursive social psychology) and social-cognition (linguistic intergroup bias, LIB). All of these perspectives present attitudes in argumentative context and examine intergroup uses of various forms of language. Finally, a case of modern Polish anti-Semitism is presented as a model issue for future application of presented methods.
