Environmental discourse and the ‘Other’: Implications from a Study in Indonesian Language Education

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

In a study of student discourse in Indonesian language education the environment emerged as a significant topic of discussion. Analysis using the Postcolonial theory concepts of orientalism and ambivalence shows that environment discourse can function as a means of Othering. It can reflect the ambivalence and complexities of Orientalism and resist simple categorisation as positive or negative.
