Media Representations Analysis 1: Texts, Critical Discourse Analysis and News Framing [Summer School]

This description applies to an earlier year. For links to my 2019 Summer School courses at Maastricht University, please have a look at this overview.

Description
The role of media before the American presidential elections, the ‘terrorist or freedom fighter’ debates and the question whether European media should speak of immigrants, refugees or asylum seekers underline the continued importance of language in media coverage. This course teaches you the skills necessary to study to study how media texts can be interpreted.

How can particular sentences in such a text be interpreted, which issues are problematized, and do things that are not part of the text have relevance as well? What role do the national and ideological context play in the production of this text? And how can you develop a coherent analytical framework and a decent structure for your paper? In a step by process with daily presentations, you address these questions. You write a paper in which you use a qualitative method to analyse a written news article. Interactive lectures and roundtable discussions help you prepare for the different steps in the writing process.

    Dear Leonhardt,
    I don’t know if I was informed too late about the application or there still is time. I couldn’t find a deadline. I would appreciate it if I was included in the email list on more details about the course as it is relevant to my my PhD dissertation.
    regards,
