Personal profile


My main interest is the analysis of the evolution of meaning of the terms referring to people on the move.

The words defining people’s migration (refugee, migrant, immigrant, asylum-seeker, illegal, displaced person, etc.) are not terms fixed in time, but they evolve according to events, contributing to constructing both the public issue and the image of the social actors involved. These representations may be observed in social discourses regarding the so-called “refugee crisis” and past events. The aim of this research is to understand, through a lexical discourse analysis, the evolution of the meanings of the terms mentioned above and the way they are used in Belgian national media in French and Dutch.
