  1. 1. State sovereignty : the concept, the referent and the ramifications

    Author : Ersun Kurtulus; Raino Malnes; Stockholms universitet; []

    Abstract : State Sovereignty - the Concept, the Phenomenon and the Ramifications is an attempt to clarify the explanatory value and the paradoxes of the concept of state sovereignty on the basis of empirical questions related to the sovereignty of various types of political entities. The book is an endeavour to bridge the gap in the international relations literature between the traditional, unproblematic usage of the concept in empirical statements and the contemporary overly problematic view of this concept, which reduces its utility to disciplinary premises and discursive practices.

    Abstract : In this dissertation, the author argues that the post-process movement towards genre-based writing pedagogies is reproducing the logic of neoliberal or free-market ideology. By analyzing the relationship between three paradigms of sovereignty (feudalism, the nation-state, and globalization) and institutionalized language, the author demonstrates that teaching writing as multiple and genred as opposed to teaching it as a single, abstract skill is no a more rational approach, but rather a differently rational approach.
