Chapter 8 examines the extent to which Polish newspapers concentrate on European matters, and to what extent they reveal the construction of a European identity of the Poles. Furthermore, it identifies the contexts in which the topics raised and the ways they are presented and discussed in the media refer to national matters and local problems and portray Polish national identity. In the majority of cases the language data presented do not support the idea of any single category of identity. The data can rather be taken as evidence of a dynamic process of construing a hybrid notion of multiple identities observed in the Polish discourses of belonging and non‐belonging — a notion which frequently seem inherently inconsistent.
