Station 19 and Black Lives Matter: A critical discourse analysis

Abstract [en]

This study analyses the TV series Station 19, which is a series about a group of firefighters in Seattle, and its characters through a critical discourse analysis. The aim of the critical discourse analysis is to find how the characters within the series convey their opinions on power relations and what their feelings are towards this. Furthermore, the study aims to find whether the language used by the characters is used in order to promote, or oppose, social change within the series. When critically analysing the discourse, the results of the analysis show that there are several characters that both oppose and support social change within the series and how they convey these opinions. Additionally, the analysis reveals a clear hegemony that exists within the series that benefits the characters that are white, and not the characters of colour.
