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

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