10. Critical Discourse Analysis and New Media

Hernández, Antonio M. Bañón


In this chapter we firstly study the basic concepts related to Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA) and its fundamental lines of research (social-cognitive analysis, discourse-historic analysis, social-ideological analysis and multimodal analysis). Secondly, we reflect upon the influence of CDA on the study of new forms of communication media, paying particular attention to three dimensions thereof: changes in features of speaker and recipient (identity and authorship, wider interlocution and exposed interlocution), timing readjustments, spaces and media (continuity, availability and speed, convergence and multimodality), and the novelties in the manner of structuring the social-cognitive dimension of communication (access and accessibility, fragmentation and accumulation). Thirdly, we underscore, before the conclusions, part of the most relevant research in the Hispanic field about treatment of minorities and migratory processes, health and disease, gender and poverty, in the new media.
