Lecture Kobie van Krieken, 5th International Language in the Media Conference

At the 5th International Language in the Media Conference at Queen Mary, University of London, Kobie will give a presentation titled “Representation and blending of viewpoints in journalistic narratives about shocking news events”. The aim of this presentation is (1) to demonstrate how journalists strategically use language in their narratives to represent and blend the viewpoints of eyewitnesses of shocking criminal acts and (2) to show how these viewpoint representations are legitimized in order to meet the genre’s demand of factuality.

The theme of the 2013 International Language in the Media Conference is “Redefining journalism: Participation, practice, change”. The conference takes place from 28 till 30 September.
