The Absent Female Rotarian in Finland: A Critical Discourse Analysis of Rotary Norden

Maj-Britt Höglund

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterScientific

    Abstract

    This study investigates how women members are discursively constructed in written texts and images in the magazine Rotary Norden, published in four Nordic languages, from the assumption that on the club level, membership is still a brotherhood: members are ‘Rotary brothers’. The study is set within Critical Discourse Analysis (CDA), and the method is multimodal repertoire analysis. The findings indicate that, in the magazine, women members are treated in terms of exclusion or absence.
