CARVALHO, Lauriston Araújo  and  MENANDRO, Maria Cristina Smith. Representations of transposition São Francisco River in the state of Paraíba press. Arq. bras. psicol. [online]. 2018, vol.70, n.1, pp. 110-127. ISSN 1809-5267.

This study aimed to identify the social representations of the São Francisco transposition in the Journal of Paraíba between 1999 and 2008. Data collection was conducted on the newspaper's website, in a total of 1346 reports. Data collected was analyzed by Alceste software. Results show speeches in favor and against the project during the FHC and Lula administrations. The speeches against the project are directed to the degraded state of the São Francisco River objectified in a sick person. Civil and religious entities are the main representatives of these speeches. Delivered by politicians, speeches in favor anchor in the drought phenomenon. The flow of the river to quench their thirst and economic development are representational elements, which objectified in the Northeast migrant, defend the transposition. Distinct representations in the two governments are then perceived, and it should be understood considering the groups which disseminates each representation.

Keywords : Social representation; Transposition; Press; São Francisco River.
