Abstract
Representation of Self and Others is a wide-spread focus of research among scholars from many disciplines. This study approaches the phenomenon of Self and Other from a linguistic standpoint. The main goal is to reveal methods of creating images of Self and Others in the context of blogs and link the analysis to the reflection of contemporary Russian society at large. The thesis applies the following methodologies: Reisigl and Wodak’s (2001) framework of social discrimination and Issers’s (1996) approach to political roles in post-Soviet Russia. The corpus of the study is formed by 300 entries from Bozhena Rynska's blog, becky-sharpe.livejournal.com. A system of dominants, which are used for the creation of images of Self and Others, is developed. The analysis reveals that the representation of Self and Others in the blog is ambiguous in both form and meaning and provides additional insight into societies in transition.
