RODRIGUEZ, Francisco  y  WILLIAMS, Julia. Socio-discursive representation of the actors involved in the attack against a young Ecuadorian girl on a suburban train in Barcelona: A case study. Rev. signos [online]. 2011, vol.44, n.77, pp.275-294. ISSN 0718-0934.

This study is an account of the socio-discursive representation of the actors involved in a racial aggression which took place on a suburban train in Barcelona. The data includes two subcorpora from the Ecuadorian and Spanish press. The quantitative and qualitative analysis is based on the description of the actors present in the scene (aggressor, victim and witness). The results reveal that the press in both countries reconstructed the events through an analogous socio-discursive procedure which involved favouring the members of nationalities akin to each group of the written media; that is, attenuating the responsibility of the aggressor in the Spanish media and stressing the defenceless condition of the victim in the Ecuadorian texts, as shown by the denominations, characterisation and actions attributed to each side, which constitute the basic categories for this analysis.

Palabras clave : Press; critical discourse studies; woman; immigration.
