A living lie or living truth: Hypertextual, intertextual and discursive aspects of web pages dealing with the Protocols of Zion

Abstract [en]

The Protocols of the Wise Men of Zion describe a Jewish conspiracy against the world. In 1921 they were proven to be a forgery, but are still used for anti-Semitic purposes. On the Internet the Protocols can easily be spread and discussed. This study aims at exploring the use on the Internet today, by whom, for what purposes and in what contexts. The first twenty web pages found through the search engine Google (www.google.se) when searching for sions vises protokoll were analysed based on the concept of The Hypertextual Dialogue with three levels: a technical level, an intertextual level and a discursive level. The result focuses on the function of the links as well as the use of different types of texts. There are discourses related to history, media, rhetoric, ideology/religion and literature, and, on a wider perspective, to a discourse about freedom of speech on the Internet.
