Currently I am working on the portrayal of immigration and immigrants in US newspapers from the 1870s to the 1920s. As my prime source I use ProQuest Historical Newspapers. For each decades the search (I use keywords: immigration or immigrant) produces several thousands of texts. As I'm most interested in the discourse, using the method of discourse analysis and frame analysis. Therefore I concentrate on editorial articles, however, a lot of interesting information is also in news pieces. Therefore I wonder what sample size I should use to reduce the results to the size that I could work on. My research is qualitative, however, I want to make sure that the content analysis meets its requirements.
I analyze how alternative media frame "the other", that is foreigners, immigrants or refugees, whether they copy frames from the mainstream media or are able to create their own.
