The course will be taught in Spanish.

The oral political discourse in the media (speeches, interviews, talk shows, etc.) from a pragmatics and critical discourse analysis perspective. Authentic materials in Spanish will be analyzed, looking at the relationship between language, ideology and power that emerges from them.
