Маломобильные в российских печатных СМИ: анализ репрезентаций уязвимых групп до и во время пандемии
The article presents the results of content analysis and network media analysis in the dynamics of changes in the discourse about low-mobility groups in Russian print media before and during the coronavirus pandemic. The following subgroups were classified in the study as low-mobility: persons with impairments and disabilities, elderly people, pregnant women, people with small children. The research is based on the analysis of materials from the archives of the daily editions of Rossiyskaya Gazeta (RG) and Komsomolskaya Pravda (KP). The discourse about the accessible environment has significantly decreased over the past four years on the pages of RG and KP, and this suggests that the issues of comfort and accessibility of public spaces for all citizens have lost their former problematic relevance. At the same time, the discourse about persons with disabilities (PWD) remains quite noticeable. But, if in RG its intensity has hardly changed, then in KP the discourse about PWD has shrunk in the first two years of the pandemic. In RG, on the contrary, with the beginning of the pandemic, more materials about the experience of the disease of PWD began to be published. Most of the other materials in RG and KP wrote about the elderly and PWD. They are represented as needing support or initiators of any social actions. The analysis revealed the emphasis on self-sufficiency and activity of representatives of the studied groups associated with an imbalance in the distribution of responsibility for solving the problems of socially vulnerable citizens.
