Digital Discourses of Activism and Protest
Descripción del evento
Seminar 'Potentials and Challenges of Researching Digital Discourses of Protest: Case Studies from the Arab Levant'.
Speaker: Francesco L. Sinatora, The George Washington University (USA).
This talk will illustrate how the notions of linguistic hybridity, chronotopes, and indexicality can be applied to the study of social and political movements through an array of case studies, with a focus on the Arab Levant, including discourses of political dissidence, as well as of LGBTQ+ and feminist emancipation. It will discuss the type of sociolinguistic questions that may arise in the analysis of contemporary sociopolitical phenomena, as well as the advantages and the challenges of adopting a combination of qualitative critica-discourse, multimodal, and ethnographic methods for the study of language and socio-political digital activism.
