American Missionaries in the Ottoman Empire: A Conceptual Metaphor Analysis of Missionary Narrative, 1820-1898 [9783837638080]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
This book is a metaphor-based analysis of the texts produced by the missionaries of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions in the Ottoman Empire between 1820-1898. It explores the conceptual metaphor networks inherent to the official missionary discourse. The explication of these networks uncovers how the missionaries defined and depicted themselves and what they encountered. Being a synthesis of literary studies, linguistics, cultural history, and religious studies the work analyses the missionary narrative in its historical context by applying literary, narratological, and linguistic tools.
AUTHOR: Hami Inan Gumus (PhD) is an associated post-doc at the Graduate School Society and Culture in Motion, Halle, Germany. His current research focuses on American missionary activities in the Ottoman Empire.
