Abstract: Presented is a study of how ideological representations are achieved in & through discourse, & how certain ideological-representational practices serve the interest of one group at the expense of others. Specifically, the analysis examines the construction of the cultural Other as created in English-language travel accounts written by Dutch travelers in China, & it delineates the discursive strategies writers use to promote & support the marginalization & stereotyping of the Chinese. It is noted that this social exclusion is primarily accomplished through temporal distancing tactics & comparative & ironical constructions that serve to promote a vision of the Chinese as a culturally primitive & inferior Other in comparison to the Western/European ideal, thus supporting what J. Fabian (1983) termed the "denial of coevalness." R. Meyer.
