Der Diskurs über Schulamokläufe
[The Dynamics of Knowledge in Modern Media Society: A Linguistic Discourse Analysis of German School Shootings]
Series:Sprache und Wissen (SuW) 35
Aims and Scope
In the aftermath of school shootings, a discursive wave spreads through the mass media, constantly reformulating personal observations, scholarly proposals for solutions, and legislative measures. The study examines this example of the social constitution of knowledge using pragmatic and text linguistic methods to describe the patterns by which communication is structured in the public sphere.
