Islamophobia in the UK print media: An intersectional critical discourse analysis


This paper investigates how various Muslim-identity groups are represented in the British press. The study adopted an intersectional critical discourse analysis as an analytical framework (see Baker and Levon 2016) of a corpus of a medium size. The method adopted used drew on corpus methods by identifying strong collocations associated with each identified identity followed by qualitative analysis. The findings highlight the living experiences of British Muslims which might be gendered, classed and racialized with certain Muslim identity-groups. The present study demonstrates through an intersectional approach that media representations of Muslims are constituted through race, gender and class and that Muslims are perceived to be othered in contemporary British public discourses.

Keywords: Britain, Discourse Analysis, Discourse of Islamophobia, corpus analysis, intersectionality
