The linguistic grounding of the FSGM framing analysis

w

The frame semantic grammar method’s powerful characteristics that were described in the last post – e.g., predefined analytical values for the SVO structure and the related quantitative output of the framing analysis – essentially exist as a set of guidelines based on various assumed ties between the realm of linguistics/semantics and social movement framing theory. . . . → Read More: The linguistic grounding of the FSGM framing analysis

Two core characteristics underlying the strong potential of the FSGM

rulers

The novelty and potency of the FSGM especially relates to its particular analytical use of the SVO structure and the kind of analytical insights made possible by such use. . . . → Read More: Two core characteristics underlying the strong potential of the FSGM

A short introduction to the frame semantic grammar method

Scales

Methods that provide clear analytical guidelines for framing research offer a nice potential for standardization and thus comparison of results across time and studies. The development of such methods is a necessary step in the overall strengthening of the social movement framing perspective. We’ve already seen how a few framing research methods… . . . → Read More: A short introduction to the frame semantic grammar method

Contributions to the development of standardized guidelines for the (text-based) analysis of framing

Schema2

In confronting certain limitations otherwise describing empirical research on social movement framing, various scholars have suggested ways to device methods that offer a potential for methodological standardization. . . . → Read More: Contributions to the development of standardized guidelines for the (text-based) analysis of framing

Empirical research on movement framing and the lack of standardized methods

mag2

The framing perspective has without a doubt expanded social movement scholarship in a meaningful direction by adding crucial elements to the mix. However, the added strength has mainly been a theoretical one, and a lacking development of rigorous analytic principles has left the empirical investigation of framing-related topics in a less convincing state. . . . → Read More: Empirical research on movement framing and the lack of standardized methods

On the cognitive and communicative facilitation of human political behavior

heads

As human beings we’re endowed with capacities that let us learn about, mentally represent, and interpret in extremely flexible ways the physical and social world around us. That’s quite neat indeed. However, the magic doesn’t stop there; said interpretations aren’t necessarily kept private. We are able to present to other human beings various different takes on reality… . . . → Read More: On the cognitive and communicative facilitation of human political behavior

A primer on the social movement framing perspective (3)

Mansign12

Manifesting what supposedly reflects concrete elements of social movement frames and framing, two sets of theoretical constructs – framing tasks and frame components – inhabit central positions within the social movement framing perspective. . . . → Read More: A primer on the social movement framing perspective (3)

A primer on the social movement framing perspective (2)

frame6

The social movement framing perspective and the theoretical constructs forming part of it are related to and partly based on various general ideas found in the much broader interdisciplinary framing theory field. Of particular importance is the central concept frame and the derived concept framing. . . . → Read More: A primer on the social movement framing perspective (2)

A primer on the social movement framing perspective (1)

Meg4

Although not native to social movement research, the ideas of frames and framing have been utilized extensively within the field. Forming part of the cultural approach to social movements, framing research focuses on the certain kinds of understandings shared between people that form a movement, and how central movement actors actively attempt to shape… . . . → Read More: A primer on the social movement framing perspective (1)

A brief touch on the cultural approach to social movements

Social movements are both carriers and manufacturers of culture and meaning. Acknowledging and addressing the details of this claim is a crucial task in the attempt to study and understand movement activity because the existence and functioning of such activity is inextricably tied to the larger context of (1) a society’s extant ideas and values… . . . → Read More: A brief touch on the cultural approach to social movements
