A corpus linguistic investigation into the media representation of the suffrage movement
Gupta, Katherine E. (2013) A corpus linguistic investigation into the media representation of the suffrage movement. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
This thesis focuses on the representation of the women's suffrage movement in The Times newspaper between 1908 and 1914. I assemble two focused corpora from texts from News International's The Times Digital Archive: the 7 million word Suffrage corpus and the 400,000 word Letters to the Editor corpus. I then combine historical research into the suffrage movement, corpus linguistic analysis of social discourses and approaches drawn from critical discourse analysis.
