(Română) DE LA MULTIPLICATION DES IMAGES ET DES MEDIAS

Posted On Nov 10 2015 by

Much research has been done to explain in all ways possible our relationships with images. But what if the explanations that have been suggested so far were false or incomplete? Could it be possible that our relation to images not be linked to their content? Could it be possible that their abundant presence be in direct association with the structure of our subconscious? We will answer, among other things, to the paradox of the universalization of media, which are spreading throughout countries of different cultures. Indeed, the causes of the multiplication of images should be contextualized first. By relying on …

TOWARDS A GLOBAL CULTURE: AN ORGANIZATIONAL PROJECT

Posted On Jul 23 2014 by

In the last thirty years positive and negative connotations have been attributed to globalization and its related issues. While interpretations on the advantageous side envision the images of ‘one world,’ ‘one culture,’ and support the idea of international cooperation, the opposite reactions, however, signal the fears of developing and underdeveloped countries. To its supporters, globalization advocates ‘inter-culturality’, which is a cultural model patterned by the Western countries, mainly the Anglo-American ones. Yet, globalization poses a threat to the growing economies of developing countries as well as to their culture-based state ideologies since a suggested over-all cultural hegemony is high on …

The construction of self is very closely linked to image. In studies of the psyche, the “mirror stage” illustrates first awareness of self-image. The perception of this image has thus come to symbolically embody the creation of conscience in the individual. In light of this, we too often forget when we explore the mirror stage that discourse is at the heart of this realisation (we should say more accurately that discourse is at the heart of the image itself).  Actually what happens is that a simple reflection becomes a self-image, conveyed by the discourse of the mother “look, it’s you!”. …


DISSOLUTION OU RESTRUCTURATION D’IDENTITÉ DANS LA COMMUNE RURALE DE MATEEŞTI, DÉP. DE VÂLCEA?

Posted On Oct 17 2011 by

Dans un pays de villages qui depuis deux cents ans lutte pour devenir urbain (moderne), la commune de Mateeşti suit le chemin bien connu de l’accumulation effrénée et de la parade de symboles spécifiquement urbains. Les médias y jouent un rôle décisif. Les produits médiatiques préférés sont ceux déjà adoptés par les catégories sociales récemment et / ou incomplètement urbanisées. A un certain moment de leur accumulation, les éléments capables de conférer un nouveau statut se heurtent aux éléments relevant de l’ancien ordre social (ne citons que la poursuite des intérêts pratiques et l’attachement obsessif à l’argent). Les traditions – …


POWER THROUGH METAPHOR IN BUSINESS MEDIA TEXTS

Posted On Oct 17 2011 by

It has already been demonstrated that business media texts are characterized by coherent conceptual models centring on different metaphors. Such models encompass various power-building mechanisms that the respective discourse shares with related social practices. Since these mechanisms are not necessarily conspicuous, the present article focuses on revealing how metaphors indirectly ascribe and delegate power to different categories of business actors (men/women, authors of business commentaries, leaders etc.) by embedding ideology in the written text
