Intercultural Perspectives

The purpose of this book is twofold. Firstly, it aims to give an informed assessment of British media discourse on 'Germany' and 'the Germans' after unification. A number of controversial issues in Anglo-German relations in the 1990s have been discussed from a historical and political perspective elsewhere. In contrast, this volume focuses on the analysis of media discourse and its agenda setters throughout the 1990s by bringing together a wide variety of sources from the British press, radio and television, which are not always easily accessible to a wider audience. Secondly, the book aims to show that the power of the media to create and perpetuate simplified and distorted national images and also to convey more balanced ones is something which those working in language education must come to grips with. There are a number of contributions in the book which demonstrate how language teaching can derive considerable benefit from an intercultural approach to the teaching of Landeskunde (German Area Studies) in particular. By equipping language learners with the means to access and analyse cultural practices and meanings, language teachers will enable them to adopt a critical and constructive approach to what they receive through the media. Above all, it will enable them to develop a sense of common, shared world with their European neighbours.
