Global Capitalism and Critical Awareness of Language.
Fairclough, Norman
Language Awareness, v8 n2 p71-83 1999
Discusses key issues of late modern society that help make a case for critical awareness of discourse: the relationship between discourse, knowledge, and social change in the information or knowledge-based society; the "textually-mediated" nature of contemporary social life; the relationship between discourse and social difference; the commodification of discourse; and discourse and democracy.
