Procedures without borders: the language-ideological anchorage of administrative procedures in translocal institutional settings

Katrijn Maryns UGent (2013) LANGUAGE IN SOCIETY. 42(1). p.71-92
abstract
Theoretical and applied research in the field of institutional discourse analysis calls for an increasing awareness of the constitutive nature of discourse in the representation and the assessment of social identities (Sarangi & Roberts 1999, Eades 2010, Blommaert 2010). The staunchly textualist accounts surviving institutional procedures, however, tend to obscure complex multidiscursive and language-ideologically anchored processes which mould procedural outcomes. On the basis of first-hand ethnographic data collected across legal-administrative procedures in Belgium, this article aims at revealing some meaningful contexts that have been erased in the case of an asylum seeker who became a murder victim and whose asylum file was used in the assize trial as a resource to sketch his social identity. The analysis explores the ideological functioning of textuality in the situated details of communicative practice, thereby aiming for a better understanding of the intricacies of multidiscursive identity construction in translocal procedural settings.
