La ficción distópica en inglés: análisis de la estima guiado por el corpus de la trilogía “Divergente”, de Veronica Roth

Andrea Burgos Mascarell


Dada la reciente popularidad de la ficción distópica juvenil y en particular de la trilogía Divergente, de Veronica Roth, se ha empezado a investigar este subgénero. Sin embargo, actualmente la investigación se tiende a centrar en enfoques de género y educativos, ignorando en general los aspectos psicológicos de los personajes. Mi estudio se centra en la representación de la estima y autoestima a través de un análisis basado en la anotación. Los resultados ofrecen información sobre los factores que afectan el rol y autoestima de la protagonista.

Palabras clave

Distopía; joven-adulto; Divergente; autoestima; estima; anotación
