"The representations of racism in immigrant students’ essays in Greece: The ‘hybrid balance’ between legitimizing and resistance identities"


Racism as a means for accomplishing homogeneity is at the center of this conference which draws on Critical Discourse Analysis and focuses on descriptions of racist behaviors included in immigrant students’ school essays. The lecturer investigates how the dominant assimilative and homogenizing discourse operates in Greece and how immigrant students position themselves towards this dominant discourse. The analysis focuses on the ways the immigrant students of a specific sample construct legitimizing and hybrid resistance identities.


Argiris Archakis is a linguist, educated at Thessaloniki, Copenhagen and Aarhus. His research focuses on immigrant student essays, racism, language policy issues in relation to the teaching of Greek as a second/foreign language, linguistic varieties and mass culture texts, (conversational) narratives and identity construction among others. He has published several books and a great number of peer-review articles in leading journals of the field (in Greek and in English). He teaches discourse analysis and sociolinguistics at the Department of Philology of the University of Patra.
