THE IMAGE OF â€˜THE OTHERâ€™ REFLECTED IN ACADEMIC LITERATURE TEACHING MATERIALS
AbstractAs Romania belongs to the Balkan area, academic studies concerned with particular aspects related to this geographical space constitute a part of the curriculum of the Philology Department within the Petroleum-Gas University of Ploiesti. The paper focuses on the teaching materials used in this field of study, trying to offer an insight into the manner in which the image of â€˜the otherâ€™ is presented in them. We consider that our pilot research may foster a positive attitude towards relationships among peoples in todayâ€™s society.
