Abstract [en]

Research question:

1. How have famous people in images contributed to the spread of #BlackLivesMatter’s message?

2. How can the content in the image be tied to the BlackLivesMatter movement.

 

Aim: The aim of this study is to research how famous people have appeared in images and in a what way they have contributed to spread of #BlackLivesMatter’s message

 

Method and material: A case study will be performed on the collected material from  two specific case-events that are affiliated to the movement. The material will be analyzed with a semiotic method with guidelines by Hansen and Machin (2013). All material is collected online and consists pictures that can be connected to BlackLivesMatter on a denotative or connotative level.

 

Main results:

This study's result showed that different types of performances and appearances with famous people contributed to spreading BlackLivesMatter’s message. The contribution was visualized through performances, posing at events and music videos, and use of different objects such as clothing, people, hands, and/or posing that created connotative association which could be connected to the BlackLivesMatter movement.
