Cenários portuenses de insegurança : contributos para uma análise sociológica da construção mediática do desvio
AbstractIn this article we will discuss and describe the importance of symbolic interactionism as a sociological trend decisive to the analysis and interpretation of deviation, based on studies produced by one of its representatives, Stanley Cohen. Therefore, we are paying particular attention to the role played by the mass media on the (re) construction and amplification of deviations and spaces of deviation. Consequendy, it is our purpose to analyse some of the most relevant results of an empirical study on newspaper articles about the so-called social housing in the town of Oporto, in order to illustrate and corroborate the theoretical principles of interactionism, and thus contribute for a (de) construction of deviation, deviant behaviours, its actors and spaces as portrayed in the mass media.
