POSITIONING THROUGH HATE SPEECH: IMMEDIATE EFFECTS AND LASTING CONSEQUENCES OF SERBIAN WARTIME MEDIA DISCOURSE
This study outlines the socio-political conditions in Serbia at the time of Slobodan Milosevic;'s ascent to power, highlights the role of the media in Serbian national mobilization during the Milosevic era, and analyses the key media messages in the early stages of the wars from the point of view of positioning theory. Because the author's primary academic interest is conflict resolution, not discourse analysis per se, the latter part of the study examines long-term effects of such positioning on Serbia's collective psyche and group identity, introduces the concept of cultural trauma to better describe those effects and their implications for peace in the region, and proposes a way forward.
