    ‘A geography of racism’: internal orientalism and the construction of American national identity in the film Mississippi Burning2005In: National Identities, ISSN 1460-8944, E-ISSN 1469-9907, Vol. 7, no 3, p. 265-285Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article examines the contribution of the film Mississippi Burning to theconstruction of American national identity within the context of the discourse of internal orientalism. This discourse consists of a tradition of representing the American South as fundamentally different from the rest of the United States, and an important strand of this tradition involves construing ‘the South’ as a region where racism, violence, intolerance, poverty and a group of other negative characteristics reign. In contrast, ‘America’ is understood as standing for the opposite of these vices. Mississippi Burning continues this tradition by creating a ‘geography of racism’, juxtaposing the brutality ofwhite Southerners with the morality of two FBI agents sent to Mississippi to investigate the disappearance of three civil rights workers. A variety of the film’s devices, includingthe comparison between the racist white Southerners and the FBI agents, reproduces anAmerican national identity that stands for tolerance, justice and peace.
