"Researching Canadian business news through translation: debt, austerity and victims"

A talk by Pier-Pascale Boulanger, Concordia University, with a response by Melissa Adler, Western University.

This talk is sponsored by the Rogers Chair in Journalism and New Media and Debt, Austerity & the Media.

Abstract: Translation is a point of entry for studying how social groups and topics are represented in the press. Investigating translation in a large bilingual corpus provides insight into the way anglophone and francophone journalists frame and explain economics and finance for large audiences. With Chantal Gagnon (associate professor at Université de Montréal), we look at the words “debt”, “austerity” and “victim” to see whether narratives converge or diverge when anglophone and francophone stories are set side by side and contrasted.
