The Reality of Racism

On analyzing parliamentary debates on immigration
  • Teun A. van Dijk


With this paper I want to celebrate the work of Siegfried J. Schmidt. When I just typed his name, I made a significant typo: I wrote SiegFRIEND… It was with him that I shared the beginning of text grammar, text theory and discourse studies, and who was the scholar who invited me for my first ever scholarly conference, in 1969s in Mannheim (Schmidt 1970).
