Abstract:

Mass-medias and their related languages shape society and the world-view of its citizens, and this is especially true for situations of socio-political turmoil and their fashioning by the media. Based on the Romanian Revolution of December, 1989, the function of the media in systems of control was revealed and this revelation clarified how language and the media influenced democratic processes, either through censorship or through freedom of the press. The bloody collapse of Romanian socialism, its authenticity and the execution of the dictator Nicolae Ceausescu remain controversial to this day. In terms of mass-media, this work investigates the driving concepts within the discursive complex, discursive principle, and inter-discursive relations and shows which events in the media were placed with which linguistic resources to produce the dominant narratives. Periodicals of the German minority within Romania as well as Romanian periodicals and those published in the FDR are analyzed in this work. (Universitätsverlag Winter 2014)
