Professor David Rochefort and alum Kevin P Donnelly publish a chapter in Routledge Handbook of Public PolicyMarch 27, 2013
Kevin earned his doctorate from Northeastern’s Political Science Department in 2009 and is currently an Assistant Professor of Political Science and Public Administration at Bridgewater State University. The chapter reviews three major perspectives on political language analysis based on the concepts of problem definition, framing, and narrative. It then applies these frameworks in examining the political response to a series of riots in Great Britain in 2011 as well as the Occupy Wall Street movement. Future avenues for research on political discourse are also proposed.
