Epistemics and evidentiality in a Brazilian hybrid television news interview
What is it about?
This paper looks at the strategies used by an interviewer and an interviewee as they try to persuade each other and their audiences on LGBTQ issues, especially gay adoption. In doing so, it analyzes how each interlocutor talks about what they know (e.g. their views on LGBTQ issues) , calling attention to issues such as the source and domain of their knowledge and who has the rights to present it and to know it.
Why is it important?
This paper is relevant because it presents elements of the discussion on LGBTQ people's rights using approaches that deal with knowledge and how people express it. As such, they help to understand the strategies that are often employed to support or deny these rights.
