Pandemic, Discourse Analysis, Critical Pedagogy, Privilege, Media


This short narrative is taken from my current research using a critical discourse analysis; a methodology used since the 1970s, largely attributed to Normal Fairclough and Michel Foucault. These critical notions relate to critical theory, and in education, certainly to critical pedagogy. In the spirit of this research, I note that the purpose of my narrative is to lead us to question and continue to question our capitalized world, which continually requires answers. In this instance, to examine what I see as a gestalt for our times, to ask more questions, to seek more dialogue, and to understand how privilege forms our discourses and ways of seeing.
