Discourse analysis, readers comments, social media discourse, media discourse, social controversies

Abstract : I am interested in the social construction of reality by means of discourse. I work on semantic controversies (e. g. 'migrant'/'refugee'), the discursive meaning of words (e.g. 'islamophobia') and the role these words and controversies play in media discourse (mainstream journalism as well as social networks and readers comments). PhD candidates can work on corpus linguistics and/or semantic analysis, be familiar with the recent literature on media discourse and have an interest in new corpora.
