Values we share

An Iconography of Japanese Identity - Ken Tann

Ken Tann [+-]
The University of Sydney
Ken Tann lectures at the University of Sydney on the application of linguistic research to identity issues in undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. He adopts an interdisciplinary approach to discourse analysis, and his publications include work on both the English and Japanese languages, particularly in relation to nationalism and identity politics.


This chapter discusses how the community is bound and regulated through the linguistic construction of values and belief systems known as Doxa. It shows how these values serve as interpretive devices for anecdotes and cultural stories.
