Modern Discourses on Media Control

The project will assemble and analyse a large corpus of different texts that discuss censorship and other forms of textual control in a functional manner, establishing basic categories for the discourse that administrates manifest control.

While discourse analysis has long discussed the various forms of censorship that are implied by the functions of any discourse, a focused study of the discourse of textual control itself remains largely unrealised:
The set of juridical, legislative, political, propagandistic, interpretative, feuilletonistic and other texts that comprise the description, inscription, and realisation of explicit as well as implicit textual control can yield important insights into the basic énoncés of control, its historical and cultural variance, and its correlation to different forms of government, genre, media, and institution.

 This research project is conducted by Jr. - Prof. Dr. Stephan Packard.
