Discourse Analysis

Van Dijk’s News as Discourse revisited

One of the pioneering works in the study of news from a discursive perspective is Teun A. van Dijk’s (1988) News as Discourse. The book presents an interdisciplinary approach to the analysis of news structures, news production processes, and news comprehension in terms of social cognition. Social cognition is a sub-topic of social psychology, which “attempts to measure the stages of social information processing or […] the mechanism by which social perception translates to social response” (Fiske and Taylor 2013, 17).
