Unmasking the Ideological Stance of Political Leaders by Critical Discourse Analysis: Ahmadinejad as a Case Study

Research output: Contribution in Book/Report/Proceedings - With ISBN/ISSNConference contribution/Paper



This chapter is an endeavour to underscore Ahmadinejad’s apocalyptic ideology. To this end, critical discourse analysis (CDA) is used by this chapter as a theoretical and methodological tool. By using intertextuality and interdiscursivity, as two CDA methodological tools, it is shown how Ahmadinejad’s first speech at the UN was shaped by Islamic texts and apocalyptic ideology.
