Subject: Discourse Analysis - India, South Africa, Brazil
E-mail this message to a friend

I'm looking for leads on local contemporary media or interview data
sources where the topic of poverty is discussed. Target regions include
South Africa, India, and Brazil. The goal is to compile a representative set
of texts/speech from each region across demographics and subsequently
do a comprehensive frames-based discourse analysis.

This work will inform non-profit campaign, policy, and mobilization work.
Establishing longer-term relationships with researchers/scholars in
discourse analysis is a possibility here for those interested in applying
their discourse analysis skills for a non-profit start-up focused on fighting
poverty.

Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis
