Mainstream and Alternative Economic Discourses in Czechia and Slovakia

Our aim will be to find out what do selected Czech and Slovak media write about within the economic realm, secondly, whether it is possible to speak of a mainstream and an alternative in this regard, what is the difference between them and how do journalists perceive their discursive production.

Economic discourses are an uncharted territory in Czechia and Slovakia. The aim of the proposed research is to fill this gap and analyze alternative and mainstream economic discourses within a post-structuralist theoretical framework of the critical political economy and cultural political economy. Main documents to be analyzed will be texts from the Czech and Slovak newspapers, and magazines. Our aim will be to find out what do selected Czech and Slovak media write about within the economic realm, whether it is possible to speak of a mainstream and an alternative with regard to these media and most importantly, what is the difference between them with regard to economic issues? We will use the critical discourse analysis method, the analysis of metaphors, qualitative content analysis and we will conduct interviews with the authors of the analyzed texts. This will enable us to answer the last research question: How do journalists perceive their discursive production?
