1. [No author]. MULTIMODAL CRITICAL DISCOURSE ANALYSIS OF SYSTEMATICALLY DISTORTED COMMUNICATION IN INTERCOUNTRY ADOPTION INDUSTRY WEBSITES .

Degree: 2011, Washington State University

This study addresses the question of whether U.S. intercountry adoption system web page texts discursively construct orphaned foreign children and the practice of intercountry adoption in ways that support the interests of social elites at the expense of members of marginalized social goups. I conducted a multimodal critical discourse analysis of web page texts using the discourse-historical method. I found that four types of systematically distorted communication (naturalization, neutralization, subjectification, and pacification) functioned individually and in tandem to reinforce capitalist ideology by constructing children's bodies as a legitimate medium of exchange while precluding all but token attempts to address the ways in which the large amount of money that flows through the system contribute to child trafficking. I argue that this cycle of commodification could be eliminated if the United States outlawed payment of per-child program fees to foreign agents. My analysis further revealed four additional processes of systematically distorted communication (legitimation, disqualification, topical avoidance, and meaning denial) in web page texts that repeatedly invoked the Convention of 29 May 1993 on Protection of Children and Co-operation in Respect of Intercountry Adoption, commonly referred to as the Hague Convention, to legitimate government encroachment into the private realm of the family. I conclude that government may have an appropriate role in intercountry adoption, but only if the practice is redefined from one in which prospective parents attempt to overcome the social stigma of childlessness to a means of challenging social inequity in the U.S. and abroad. To this end, I propose that federal law be amended to require agencies to offer more comprehensive pre-adoptive training and to provide families with subsidized, long-term access to post-adoption services.

2. MARCELO BAFICA COELHO. [en] ARGUMENTATION IN THE UNIVERSITY: POST-GRADUATION: THE PLACE OF REASON?.

Degree: 2018, Pontifical Catholic University of Rio de Janeiro

[pt] A presente Tese busca problematizar algumas das relações entre a racionalidade e as práticas argumentativas características do ensino superior brasileiro, principalmente no contexto da pós-graduação. Para este intento, a investigação da teoria do filósofo alemão Jurgen Habermas tornou-se fundamental, principalmente a análise das regras do discurso. Estas regras foram consideradas, neste trabalho, como elementos norteadores da racionalidade comunicativa e discursiva. Um dos focos centrais da Tese foi discutir os problemas relativos à implementação fática das ideias habermasianas. Com este intuito, tornou-se necessário aprofundar a investigação sobre o conceito de comunicação sistematicamente distorcida e articular outras observações, provenientes de patamares teóricos distintos: da psicologia cognitiva, a teoria sobre protótipos; da psicologia social destacou-se a noção de estereótipos; da psicologia genética piagetiana, o conceito de esquemas; da reflexão hermenêutica, o círculo hermenêutico. Ao final, reflexões gerais sobre a argumentação procuram evidenciar as implicações deste estudo para processos educacionais do ensino superior.

[en] This thesis aims to discuss some of the relationships between rationality and argumentative practices characteristic of Brazilian higher education, especially in the context of graduate studies. For this purpose, the investigation of the theories of the German philosopher Jurgen Habermas is crucial, especially his analysis of the rules of discourse. These rules were considered in this work as the guiding elements of communicative and discursive rationality. A central focus of the thesis is to discuss issues related to the implementation of Habermas s ideas. For this purpose, it became necessary to investigate the concept of systematically distorted communication and articulate other observations from different theoretical perspectives: the theory of prototypes in cognitive psychology; the notion of stereotypes in social psychology; the concept of schemas in Piaget s genetic psychology; and the hermeneutic circle in hermeneutics. The thesis concludes with general reflections on argumentation intended to clarify the implications of this study for educational processes in higher education.

3. Karimi, Maral. The Political Communications of Iranian Green Resistance Movement of 2009: A Critical Discourse Analysis.

Degree: MA -MA, Interdisciplinary Studies, 2016, York University

In 2009 Iran witnessed the Green Movement, a popular uprising that challenged the status quo of the socio-political structures of the Islamic Republic. In this research, I attempt to develop an understanding of the conditions that contributed to the demise of the movement. This study takes a Critical Theory approach, and the theoretical foundations of this work are the Theory of Structuration of Giddens and the Theory of Communicative Action of Habermas. The data is drawn from YouTube videos and analyzed through Critical Discourse Analysis. This research identifies the key stakeholders of the movement and investigates weather their aspirations regarding the uprising were aligned or stood in contrast. My investigation uncovers evidence of systematic communication distortion in the public discourse of the leaders of the movement which greatly impacted demobilization and led to its failure. The results of my study also disprove the viability of the Reform philosophy as a pragmatic political path to democracy. Advisors/Committee Members: Derayeh, Minoo (advisor).
