Against the Invisible Viral Enemy

  • Sebastián Moreno


This article studies the discursivisation of the struggle of healthcare workers against the coronavirus, with a focus on those textual constructions that were shaped by the metaphor of war and, specifically, that depict moments of battle. For this purpose, we use inputs from socio-discursive semiotics of a structuralist matrix to study a set of visual texts in which a discursive figurativisation shaped by these contents appears. In addition, as a point for comparison, the article proposes other forms that this figurativisation could have taken, such as games and sporting competitions.
