Through a framework building upon narrative theory, mediatization research and the analysis of intertextual systems of discourse, I research the frontiers of contemporary Brazilian media and the effects of mediatization on political systems and discourses of justice, corruption and transparency.

In my Ph.D.-project, I trace the consequences of corrupt transgression in Brazilian executive and legislative branches of government through the media stories emerging in the public sphere. Rather than dialogic, I take the public sphere to be structured by narratives, and ask what impact different emplotments and storied moralities have upon the political maneuverings in Brazilian politics.

Project title: Corruption Narratives in the Brazilian Mediasphere
