The Representation of Poverty in Latin American Newspapers

SEMINAR organised by the PoLAMe Project, funded by the Norwegian Research Council.

24 October 2014 (10:00-12:00) | Bergen Resource Center for International Development, Norway

Hegemonic views conveyed by mainstream and the agenda setting media tend to naturalize poverty within the 'common sense' and, at the same time overlook causal interpretations or explanations of poverty production and reproduction.

In order to test this hypothesis a team of researchers is in the process of combining established theories of poverty with linguistic corpus analysis, and will present their first findings at this event.
