Membership Categorization Analysis on Communication Studies: An Essay of Applied Methodology

Adriana Andrade Braga, Édison Luis Gastaldo, Juliana Depiné Alves Guimarães

Resumo


This paper presents a naturalistic methodological perspective applied to the studies of media communications called Membership Categorization Analysis (MCA). Originally developed for classifying and ordering categories within the framework of natural conversation using sequential analysis (the analysis of turn-taking), we present MCA as a promising methodological approach for analysing media discourses due to its context sensitivity, empirical foundations and its view of communication as a social practice that integrates production, distribution and reception to produce meaning.
