Research Group Ideology and Speech Analysis
The Research Group Ideology and Discourse Analysis are linked to the Postgraduate Program in Political Science of the Federal University of Pelotas. Its activities formally began in 2012, based on the main research underway entitled “Ideology and Political Parties in Brazil: a new classification methodology”. In addition to the main research, which mobilizes all members of the Research Group, other investigations, both at the institutional and extra-institutional levels, are carried out either in the undergraduate degree in Social Sciences or in postgraduate studies in Master and Doctorate courses in Political Science. The themes of each research range from the analysis of discourses aiming to know the ideology of different Brazilian political parties at the federal level, through the discursive analysis of movements of the so-called Brazilian New Right, to the study of populist political phenomena in Brazil, Latin America and in Europe.
