Representing Multiculturalism: Critical Discourse Analysis of Australian Tabloids
Malmö University, Faculty of Culture and Society (KS).
2020 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

Australia is an immigrant-receiving country that implements multiculturalism as a national policy to accommodate the needs of its culturally diverse population. The global refugee crisis of 2017, acts of terror perpetrated by radical Islamist organizations, and the rise of right-wing political conservatism across Western democracies provided an intriguing setting for examining how multiculturalism and cultural diversity were represented in Australian tabloids in the wake of Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull releasing the country’s most recent multicultural policy statement. A Faircloughian Critical Discourse Analysis of newspaper articles demonstrated a strategical variation between positive and negative representations.
