Welcome to Victoria Yantseva's mid-way seminar
"My dissertation seeks to explore the dynamics of media discourse about migration in the Swedish mainstream and social media during the last eight years. Using the methods of network and text analysis, I compare media representations of the migration topic in three different resources: mainstream newspapers, a social networking platform and a popular forum. I analyze the discourse changes against the background of the "European refugee crisis" in 2015 and put a special focus of my research on the role of social media networks and their inherent properties in the shaping of this discourse."
The seminar will be held in English via this Zoom-link.
