Data Session 18th October: Brendan Lawson, Magnus Hamann & Saul Albert: Challenging numbers in hard news interviews
October 18 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm BST
DARG will run at 13:00-14:30 UK time as a hybrid data session. Room B124 (Brockington Building, Loughborough) or on zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82657058417?pwd=b0NqMTFJK2ZxaGc2RFQ1VExmQUFPUT09. password: DARG.
Session details: In this session we will explore how numbers are managed in a conflictual interaction between journalists and a politician. We are focusing specifically on how first actions and responses do either generalization or specification, or shift between scalar and absolute number references, and what these slippages achieve in loading (or unloading) the political inferences of a hard news interview question
