|This book fills the gap between discourse theory and cultural approaches and provides an innovative and interdisciplinary contribution to areas such as cultural studies; political science; literary, art, communication, and media studies; the Internet; and film studies. By strictly focusing on the discourse theory of Laclau and Mouffe, the authors have distilled a coherent volume out of a diversity of perspectives that offer important contributions to a wide range of academic discussions, fields, and disciplines.|
