On the discourse, discourses and communication (in popular culture)
The article is an attempt to carry out a short analysis of the content of the so-called gossip media (nocoty. pl, plotek.pl). Referring to the basic assumptions of semiotics and semiology, the author attempts to reconstruct the discourses functioning in popular culture texts. The main theoretical background for the article is provided by the discourse theory as approached by Michel Foucault.
