'Early in life, I had noticed that no event is ever correctly reported in a newspaper...' George Orwell
My research at present is on the 'Culture Wars': this is a focus on the authoritarian right-wing machinery that organizes and fosters ideological attacks on knowledge, science and universities, and the connections with powerful individuals and institutions which amplify and popularize such attacks, particularly in the ways that this is used to silence those who are critical of the dominant power structures in contemporary society. In particular, I am interested in their use of argumentative strategies, rhetorical devices and tropes, and keyword and language choices.
