Abstract | Full Text

This paper aims to study the political dimensions in the speech of the Brazilian President, Dilma Rousseff, at the 66th General Assembly of United Nations. From the perspective of social representation theory, the results suggest three priorities in the speech of Dilma Rousseff, by the identification of discursive expressions and the construction of a representational map (the consolidation of a positive image of Brazil, the empowerment of women, and the international economic crisis struggle), in seven discursive dimensions, between direct and anchoring referrals. The approach of this research was focused mainly on the assumptions of Moscovici (2003), Arruda (2005) and Guareschi and Maya (2000).
