The Usage of Terms Civilization and Culture in Specific Greek Newspaper

Paraskevi Golia, Ifigenia Vamvakidou.


In New Education as has been established in Greece (new departments for Balkan studies) and is organized in Balkans (projects for cooperation with universities in Balkans) we can notice the direction for democratization and humanization.
Our research aim is to elucidate the cultural notions which are used in specific Greek newspapers “Macedonia” & “Thessaloniki” 2002 for describing the terms “civilization” and “culture” and try to reveal whether the Western countries and their cultures are still differentiated in a superior way than others. Taking into account the object and the nature of the cultural research in theoretical and experimental basis, we search in newspapers-text specific cultural key-words which show the direction of journalist discourse.
The sample of the research will be analyzed using the method of content analysis.
