The Discourse of “Rumor” in the Digital Age

*  *  *

Publicado segunda, 22 de fevereiro de 2021 por Céline Guilleux

Resumo

Rumor is a phenomenon that manifests itself in its destructive aspect. Even its dated appearance in the very first years of the twentieth century does not seem to be enough to make an “epistemological break”, as Bachelard said, “The rumor continues to be a phenomenon more believed than known in discourses” To this discursive form of rumor, its dissemination added as another dimension, because the term in question had an oral connotation, setting aside the iconic and scriptural mediation. However, we are accepting, for some time now, that the discourse of rumor could adapt to other linguistic media categories such as writings, images, caricature, especially with the advent of the Internet.

Anúncio

This event will be hosted by the Faculty of Letters and Human Sciences in Agadir, Morocco.

Coordinated

Dr. Ismail MADANI ALAOUI

Argument

During the last few decades, rumor has been a privileged subject of study in the social sciences, humanities, social psychology and sociology, including communication psychology and argumentation theories. Researchers have recently been interested in the role of rumor in the worldly societies, particularly in relation to the issue of news circulation and information dissemination. However, the most frequent studies have come from the social sciences which are quite passionate about the phenomenon as a real action, truthful in its constitution, anchored in a socio-historical context.

From this stem a first specificity of rumor, namely of a situational nature, however, which identifies crisis situations as the real melting pot, because of its excellence in its emergence and propagation. In short, rumor is a phenomenon that manifests itself in its destructive aspect. Even its dated appearance in the very first years of the twentieth century does not seem to be enough to make an "epistemological break", as Bachelard said, "The rumor continues to be a phenomenon more believed than known in discourses".

To this discursive form of rumor, its dissemination added as another dimension, because the term in question had an oral connotation, setting aside the iconic and scriptural mediation. However, we are accepting, for some time now, that the discourse of rumor could adapt to other linguistic media categories such as writings, images, caricature, especially with the advent of the Internet. Better yet, we did not give, or otherwise, we dodged studies on rumors during major informational events, COVID-19 is an example.

Hence, this international colloquium will attempt to uncover many details about this theme by trying to tackle it from various disciplines, such as discourse analysis, semantics, semiotics, pragmatics, didactics, sociolinguistics, literature, media and sociology.

In order to attain this objective, rumor must be distinguished from other constructs in terms of both form and content. Indeed, features, which are specific to it, appreciable and recognizable. It must be one of the unusual, the bizarre and the quirky. It must also touch others’ affection. Its power is triggered immediately when it settles down through society and begins its euphoric or dysphoric ascent. Hence, it begins to argue about social values, the human relationships that underlie them, thus, establishing a fiduciary contract between the sender and the recipient (according to semioticians), a communication contract between the communicating subject and the interpreting subject (according to the theory of discourse), a societal contract (according to sociologists) and a locutionary contract (according to pragmatists).

Rumor assumes not only the communication of an unusual piece of news, but also a specific narrative, discursive, enunciative, pragmatic, semiotic, etc., framework, which the enunciator will usually recognize. Without this specific, coherent and relatable form, the acts or the situations evoked will disappear in the interrupted flow of other actions, visions and contexts that mark the daily life of the human race through different discourses.

Laconically speaking, bringing speech into the scene, rumor aims more at the action on the enunciator than at the rhetorical means put in place for the success of the discourse act. From this perspective, what does a rumor mean? What signs can help us tell it? How is it formed? How is it evolving? What is its position in the typology of forms of discourse then? Does it have a great collective power of evocation, an intrusive and demolishing causticity? Are we still in the era of rumor that is similar to the works devoted to news items? What is the impact of rumor on social media?
