Hate Narratives

Language as a Tool of Intolerance

Iwona Jakubowska-Branicka

Hate Narratives examines the limits of free speech and focuses on the role of language in creating images of reality, and on language’s power to build social relationships based on hatred. The study provides an analysis of language used in totalitarian systems, along with a particular kind of narrative description, namely dogmatic hate narratives, which are used in democratic systems as well. It focuses on the notion that the media and other sources of information create «parallel realities», and that facts created by media are translated into social fact. Central to this line of thought are the determinants by which an individual chooses from among the various broadcasted images of reality.
