This paper aims to explore the role of personal narratives of long COVID patients within the discursive landscape of the media and social networks.

Abstract

This paper aims to explore the role of personal narratives of long COVID patients within the discursive landscape of the media and social networks. The study is based on a flexible notion of personal narrative, understood as a diffuse and scalar modality (Page) and as a social practice, i.e. as a social activity within a given context, in which different relations of power and ideology converge (De Fina). After defining the features of journalistic news on Facebook, using a socio-cognitive approach to discursive genres (Bhatia; Carranza 2012; Hanks), I will analyse some news about long COVID and the different narrative accounts introduced by both journalists and participants in the virtual communities. Among the results, we will highlight the prominence of the personal narrative in the social debate around health and in the discursive construction of a new disease (Bañón Hernández).
Este trabajo se propone evaluar la función de las narrativas personales de los enfermos de COVID persistente dentro del escenario discursivo de los medios de comunicación y de las redes sociales. El estudio se asienta en una noción flexible de la narrativa personal, entendida como una modalidad difusa y escalar (Page) y como una práctica social, es decir, como una actividad social dentro de un contexto determinado, en el que confluyen distintas relaciones de poder e ideología (De Fina). Tras definir los rasgos de la noticia periodística en Facebook, mediante un enfoque sociocognitivo de los géneros discursivos (Bhatia; Carranza 2012; Hanks), se analizarán algunas noticias sobre la COVID persistente y los distintos testimonios narrativos introducidos tanto por los periodistas dentro de las noticias como por los participantes en las comunidades virtuales. Entre los resultados, se destaca la prominencia de la narrativa personal en el debate social en torno a la salud y en la construcción discursiva de una nueva enfermedad (Bañón Hernández).
