Aleksandar TAKOVSKI, Texts are a-changing, are times catching up? On the divergence between discourses of social change in Macedonia


Abstract: By using discourse analysis as main analytic tool, the paper examines the competing conceptualizations of social change as manifested through the texts produced by the Macedonian Government, civil society organizations and Macedonian citizens, with focus on changes within the education discourse in Macedonia. In so doing, it tries to elaborate how power relations and power abuse both structure and determine the discourse with its adherent representations, roles and relations.

Keywords: Social change; Discourse Analysis; Ideology; Power abuse; Education; External testing.
