Abstract

The objective of this study is to analyse and describe the representation of rape crimes in the British quality press. This analysis explores the linguistic and discursive strategies used in a corpus of news reports about incidents of rape in four British broadsheets: The Guardian, The Independent, The Daily Telegraph and The Times. Integrating a quantitative and a qualitative approach to textual analysis, i.e. Corpus Linguistics (CL) and Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA), this study examines a wide range of topics related to the representation of gender in the British mainstream press when covering incidents of rape. Some of the topics explored in this study include: victim-blaming strategies, rape myths, the law-and-order approach to fighting this crime, as well as forms of resistant discourse.
