  • Product Description
 

The theories of ideology and discourse are from distinct theoretical traditions within modern social theory. Social relations may be explored and unravelled by either theory. The discourse theory, however, has dominated modern social theory for decades and can be seen in Edward Said’s Orientalism (1978). His work will be employed in analyzing how the "Other" (Muslim) is constructed and perceived in Canada. Inversely, Marx and Marxist philosopher Louis Althusser’s work is immensely embedded in ideology. Post 9/11, Muslims have been subject to ideological practices and objectives of national security in Canada. These objectives are carried out by what Louis Althusser termed as Ideological and Repressive State Apparatuses that I argue channel certain representations and perceptions of Othered bodies that endanger Muslim bodies through an Orientalising gaze.
