2019 (English)In: Discourse, Culture and Organization: Inquiries into Relational Structures of Power / [ed] Tomas Marttila, New York: Palgrave Macmillan, 2019Chapter in book (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

The chapter engages in a discussion about the knotted relations between the discursive and the material, starting from the discourse-theoretical position developed by Laclau and Mouffe, which emphasizes the importance of the discursive as producing necessary but contingent frameworks of intelligentibility. Even if Laclau and Mouffe’s discourse theory acknowledges the importance of the material, this chapter also argues for a clearer development of the material’s capacity to intervene in the discursive. Two concepts are proposed to think this through further, namely, the dislocation and the invitation, where the former captures a more disruptive mechanism and the latter a more constructive mechanism. In the last part of the chapter, the workings of both concepts are illustrated in a case study on a Cypriot community media organization, called the Cyprus Community Media Centre (CCMC). This case study shows how the counter-hegemonic project of the CCMC, with its materials, manages to disrupt the antagonistic-nationalist discourses that circulate on this island and is simultaneously disrupted because the discursive and material components of the CCMC assemblage do not let themselves be harnessed and encapsulated that easily either.

Abstract [en]

The article’s objective is to analyse the discursive construction of the Czechnation in three cultural magazines, produced by Czech exiles in London duringWWII. The theoretical backbone for this analysis is provided by Laclau andMouffe’s (1985) discourse theory, which in turn supports a discourse-theoreticalre-reading of the literature on the nation, first in general and then in relationto the Czech nation. These three theoretical components support an analysis of650 selected contributions in 36 issues of the three main cultural journals of theCzech London exile: Obzor [Horizon], Kulturní zápisník [Cultural Notebook]and Review. This discourse-theoretical analysis shows the presence, particularityand contingency of a series of internal nodal points (temporal, spatial, linguistic,cultural and popular), in combination with the external nodal point of diversityin relation to outgroups. In the conclusion, the political nature of this construction,which we label the politics of poetry, is emphasized.

Abstract [en]

Deconstructing nationalist assemblages is a visual essay which analyses the memorialization oftwo conflicts in Cyprus ‒ he independence war of 1955-1959 and the Turkish invasion of 1974,focusing on the memorials in the part of Cyprus controlled by the Republic of Cyprus. Embeddedin a discursive-material knot perspective, the essay defines the memorials as the material componentsof nationalist assemblages, which have the agency to invite for particular interpretations.After providing the historical background of the Cyprus Problem, and the two conflicts, the essayfirst analyses the statues and commemoration sites which support a (post-)antagonistic nationalism,but then also discusses (and shows) how this still dominant model is undermined in twoways. Firstly, the practices of everyday life undermine and neutralize the invitations for respectand agreement that the memorials communicate and expect. Secondly, as the Cyprus space cannotbe totally controlled, memorials that invite for alternative and counter-hegemonic readingshave also appeared. The conclusion briefly reflects about the possibilities for further self-enemyre-articulations.
