Diplomatic Voices and the Media

Project: Research

Layman's description

The project lies in the intersection of linguistic, sociological and psychological approaches. It gives us a refined methodological tool for a systematic description of the communicative patterns and structures that conversational participants use when they position their perspectives.

The project studied focus group conversations, the dynamics of categorizations in conversation, polyphony of voices and intertextuality and the role of examples in argumentation.

Researcher in the project was David Wästerfors (Sociology Department).
