CARDENAS NEIRA, Camila  and  PEREZ ARREDONDO, Carolina. Multimodal recontextualization of the actions and motives of the Chilean student movement in a broadcast news report. Lit. lingüíst. [online]. 2018, n.37, pp.217-236. ISSN 0716-5811.

In September 2014, Canal 13 broadcasted a journalistic investigation on the Chilean student movement and the radical groups that conform it, linking them to the bomb explosion which had occurred the same day in a subway station in Santiago. We explore the discursive and semiotic resources with which students’ actions and motives are recontextualized. In particular, we identify and describe multimodal metaphors and their function in the overall delegitimation of this political collectives, grounded in Critical Discourse Studies.

Keywords : Narration; Multimodality; News broadcast; Chilean student movement; Hooded demonstrators.
