Discourses and Social Praxis of Entrepreneurship. A Glance from the Critical Discourse Analysis Discursos y praxis social del emprendimiento. Una mirada desde el análisis crítico del discurso
Jaime Andrés Ararat Herrera
AD-minister , 2009,
Abstract: The objective of this article is to socialize some findings related to the understanding of the discourses that guide the teaching of entrepreneurship in Higher Education Institutions in Medellin city. It is explored through a qualitative approach and the Critical Discourse Analysis Methodology, its "construction" through the discursive practices with people in charge of the social praxis of the analyzed institutions. It identifies commonalities and differentiators that support the "discourse" (values, ideologies and discursive devices used in each). The information was gathered through semi structured interviews and textual analysis of the structure of institutional newspaper news. It also provided an institutional context in which students understand, memorize and use the entrepreneurship information for their social praxis. In the given discourse, the use of semantic macrostructures is evident, providing cohesion and coherence in each of the analyzed institutions. Con el artículo se pretende socializar algunos hallazgos relacionados con la comprensión de los discursos que orientan la ense anza del emprendimiento en las Instituciones de Educación Superior de la ciudad de Medellín. Se examina, mediante un enfoque cualitativo y una metodología de Análisis Crítico del Discurso, la “construcción” de los mismos, a través de las prácticas discursivas de los encargados de orientar su praxis social en las entidades analizadas. Se identifican aspectos comunes y diferenciadores que soportan dicho “discurso” (valores, ideologías y dispositivos discursivos utilizados en cada una de ellas). La información se recopiló a través de entrevistas semiestructuradas y análisis de la estructura textual de noticias en periódicos institucionales. Se proporcionó también un contexto institucional en donde los estudiantes entienden, memorizan y utilizan la información del emprendimiento para su praxis social. En el discurso emitido se evidencia el uso de macroestructuras semánticas que aportan cohesión y coherencia en cada una de las instituciones estudiadas.
A CENTURY OF NEWS DISCOURSE
Allan Bell
International Journal of English Studies (IJES) , 2003, DOI: 10.6018/ijes.3.1.48651
Abstract: This paper traces the development of news discourse across the 20th century ihrough a case study ofthe coverage of three expeditions to the South Pole: Captain Scott in 1912, Sir Edmund Hillary in 1958, and Peter Hillary in 1999. The way the news about the three expeditions reached New Zealand media serves as a framework and an illustration to examine three related issues: how technology has changed the time and place dimensions of news delivery; the consequent and concomitant shifts in news presentation; and associated changes in how humans have understood time and place. News values remain the same at a broad level across the century, but different in detail. Nationalism is obtrusive, but its focus shifts. In news practice, the deadline and the scoop drive the news in al1 three periods, but the scooping medium shifts from press to radio to television. The lapse between an event and its reporting shrinks exponentially from months to hours to minutes. The design of newspaper front pages changes radically, and news language compresses. There are social impacts, with newsworthy figures receiving closer exposure and the audience being cast in a more voyeuristic role.
Blogging 9/11 and Memory Discourse  [cached]
Maria Cristina Paganoni
Altre Modernità , 2011,
Abstract: Marking ‘Time Zero’ in the history of the US and the world, the 9/11 catastrophe provoked an outburst of discourses that found an unprecedented sounding board in the blogosphere, flooded with fragmentary contributions from a global public that mostly witnessed the event mediated by TV coverage. Examining a decade bracketed by those traumatic attacks and Osama bin Laden’s death, we may ask ourselves in what relationship the continuous flow of comments, disclosures and news updates published on 9/11-related blogs stands to the making of the history of the event and what followed it, especially the emergence of the ‘war-on-terror’ rhetoric. This article highlights a few of the salient discursive and linguistic patterns that recur in the 9/11 narratives that have multiplied online on several dedicated websites and investigates the evolution of 9/11 cultural memory practices, torn between the discourse of the unrepresentable and the imperative to remember. It claims that blogging 9/11, immediately after the attacks and over the years, well illustrates how the logic of memory and its interpretation of the past follow different criteria from history writing. It shows how memorialization practices, dictated by the fear of forgetting the vanishing present, contribute to that excess of memory that lies at the core of the instability and mutual competition of sources retrieved on the Internet and that might ultimately lead to a rethinking of what is the contribution of collective memory to historiography.

This article aims to discover discourses of motherhood of Turkish mothers, especially educated and middle class, who have children dependent on their consumption decisions and how their discourses figure in their consumption practices of products, such as food and clothing, which they buy on behalf of their children. Discursive and consumption practices of Turkish mothers who are participating in selected virtual communities are analyzed by means of qualitative research methods. Main discourses that can be observed in their told consumption practices appeared to be the “good mothering” and “motherhood as personal achievement”. Backgrounding and absent discourses are also discussed.
Critical Instance Analysis of News English Discourse  [cached]
Hongmei Pang,Sijun Wu
English Language Teaching , 2009, DOI: 10.5539/elt.v2n2p148
Abstract: Critical discourse analysis (CDA) thought that the discourse was concrete social practice, and the language served for the potency, and the discourse embodied the ideology. Two presses about the case that the US Mattel Toy Company recalled toys “Made in China” in Washington Post (newspaper) and New York Times (newspaper) were taken as the language materials and critically analyzed from language environment and discourse structure, and new view and argumentation were attempted to dig the relationships among language, potency and ideology, which could help students to establish the critical thinking, flexibly utilize the discourse analysis tool, enhance the judgment and appreciation ability, directly review the motives concealed in the medias, and understand the media discourses from deeper layer.

Diane J. Austin-Broos
New West Indian Guide , 1994,
Abstract: Argues that Jamaican notions of 'race' and 'class' can be rendered as a discourse of heritable biological and environmental identity. There has been a movement in the meaning of colour categories from an emphasis on biology, to a greater emphasis on environment. This transition has been encouraged by the emergence of class as a 20th-c. idiom.

Panchenko Natalya Nikolaevna
Magister Dixit , 2011,
Abstract: The present article focuses on the incorporation of the comic into the news discourse as being intentional rather than inadvertent. The incorporation of the comic sense is accomplished by the use of the rhetorical figures of speech, or tropes. Thus, the creative discursive personality of the journalist is regarded as belonging to tropological elite and mastering the standards of cultural excellence.
Connection between News Narrative Discourse and Ideology--Based on Narrative Perspective Analysis of “News Probe”  [cached]
Fangzhou Cheng
Asian Social Science , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v8n12p75
Abstract: There are various methods to interpret the TV text and narrative analysis is a deconstruction method that studies the internal form of a narrative text. Narrative discourse analysis regards the construction role of text as the focus and it has a close connection with ideology, especially in news report. That is, ideology controls news narrative discourse, whereas news narrative discourse helps to construct the existing ideology. This paper is going to take as an example the CCTV “News Probe”, the representative of news investigation programs in China, deconstructs the text from the perspective of narrative perspective and further makes clear the connection between news narrative discourse and ideology.
