At the same time it attempts to capture changing discourses in communities by establishing a link between the display of signs and symbols, overarching power structures and the formation of cultural and political identities (Scollon and Wong Scollon, 2003; Coupland, 2010; Jaworski and Thurlow, 2010; Papen, 2012).
