Talking Politics: The Delimitation of the ‘Political’ As a Gendered Disciplinary Mechanism in Intra-Group Dialogue Among Young Israelis.
Analyzing the discourse in these two groups, we argue that the political space is being marked, defined and delimited through gendered discursive practices, creating hierarchies between emotional and cognitive knowledge. We present the different roles participants take in the group, and address the different disciplinary mechanisms and practices of resistance that are being used by participants in the group. We address three main strategies: cognitive talk, emotional talk and silence and their manifestation within different phases in the group process.
Finally, we discuss the meanings of the internal group dynamic in face of the external socio-political processes that happened in these years, and in particular related to the 2014 Gaza war.
