Linguistic Field(s): Discourse Analysis

Meeting Description:

The connection between mass media and politics, which at times affects the selection of news and the way it is produced, can be identified in discourse choices, representations with a cultural connotation, and also in the practical work of journalists and the reactions of the target public. It can take various shapes, according to the political framework, the geographical location, and the linguistic, social, and cultural contexts in which it is expressed.

Adopting an intercultural and interdisciplinary approach, the conference seeks to explore the many facets of the relationship between various means of communication (print media, television, and Internet) and politics, through contributions covering its discursive, cultural, and professional aspects, and regarding diverse media contexts, such as Asia, America, Europe, and the Arabic World.
