Show Summary Details


This chapter offers a theoretical framework for studying and understanding hegemonic discourses and their function and effects. This framework is based on a synthesis of comparative institutionalism and discourse theory, and is focused on the interaction between the hegemonic and the national public discourses. This chapter proposes an understanding of hegemonic discourse communication as an integral part of national ideology-production mechanisms. It also elaborates on how the concept of hegemonic discourses can be operationalised in terms of research strategy and methodology.

Keywords: hegemonic discourse; theoretical framework; comparative institutionalism; discourse theory; national public discourses; ideology-production mechanisms
