Texts and Images of Austerity. A Multimodal Multimedia Analysis

Austerity is a complex phenomenon with far reaching consequences for economic wellbeing, social justice and political systems. It is not without alternative, but connected to different political projects that can only be understood by looking at both sedimented economic and political mechanisms as well as the meaning giving efforts of human actors. As part of a broader research project on austerity, the workshop will focus on discursive constructions of austerity in the British media. The British case is of particular importance.
