DIGITAL COMMUNITY STORYTELLING AS A SOCIOPOLITICAL CRITICAL DEVICE

Abstract
This article analyses 40 community digital stories drawing upon the principles of corpus-based critical discourse studies (Baker et al., 2008). The stories are analysed with the intention of testing if they may be classified as examples of socio-political digital stories. Sociopolitical digital stories are described here as a tool that individuals may use in order to bring forward issues that may concern and affect democracy (Couldry, 2008), social welfare and social stability; and may serve to ease the communication, interaction and exchange of information about conflictive social practices. The stories analysed can be considered timid examples of what socio-political individual digital storytelling might do for society, thus helping, at least potentially, to democratise the exchange of ideas between the members of our society.
Keywords
digital storytelling, socio-political, Corpus Assisted Discourse Analysis, appraisal.
