Title: Reputational Discourse in the Online Artworld

Supervisors: Dr. Tim Stott, Dr. Brendan O’ Rourke

Overview: Adopting a transdisciplinary approach, the project brings together Bourdieusian Field Analysis, Critical Discourse Analysis and Corpus Linguistics in order to examine the discursive construction of reputational value by Online Contemporary Art Magazines. Combining the above approaches allows the study to seek explanations in the relationships between structures, positions, and practices. The study furthermore addresses the role of emerging technologies in the development of norms in art discourse.
