GOMES, Maria Carmen Aires and BARBARA, Leila. Women, politics and media: some investigations around the sociocultural representation of Dilma Rousseff. DELTA [online]. 2011, vol.27, n.2, pp. 311-335. ISSN 0102-4450. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-44502011000200006.
Based on research in Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL) this paper studies the representation of the social actor Dilma Rousseff, when she was Minister of "casa Civil" of the Brazilian Government and was a pre-candidate to the presidency of the country. The data are taken from the on line version of the weekly magazines of general information Veja, Época e IstoÉ. The purpose of the paper is to discuss the magazines' representation of that social actor, based on Theo van Leeuwen's (1996, 1997, 2008) socio-semantic inventory.
