Produktbeschreibung
The book deals with media representations to investigate how ISIS is represented in the articles of the Washington Post and the New York Times. By employing mixed methods research: quantitative and qualitative approaches, the study looks into 20 articles that are selected from both selected newspapers. Analyzing these news articles will be done using van Leeuwen's (2008) Social Actor Approach to discover the representation of ISIS and investigate how it is realized linguistically by uncovering possible underlying ideologies. The analysis shows that the target newspapers have represented ISIS similarly with the same linguistic strategies. They depict ISIS as active dynamic social actor. Additionally, ISIS is portrayed as powerful social actor, and therefore, as the negative-other representation.
