About Nora Theorin
I am employed as a PhD student at JMG since January 2017. In the spring of 2015 i wrote a master's thesis in Political Science at the Department of Political Science at University of Gothenburg. Previous studies also includes Media and Communication Studies and Law.
After my graduation I worked as a research assistant for Dr. Emma Bäck at the Department of Psychology, University of Gothenburg. The research that I was involved in focused on political psychology and I was responsible for the data collection of the experimental parts of the projects "Extreme activism? Psychological explanations for protesting" and "The Political Psychology of Radicalization".
I am especially interested in research that mainly focuses on micro level analysis - such as media effects on citizens, political psychology and public opinion. Furthermore, I am very interested in research about mechanisms behind attitudes toward immigration and voter support for radical right parties.
Current research project
My dissertation project focuses on media effects on attitudes toward migration in Europe. The doctoral studentship was 2017-2019 included in the research project "Role of European Mobility and its Impacts in Narratives, Debates and EU Reforms". The project was funded by Horizon 2020, the EU framework programme for research and Innovation. During the research project, a panel study and a survey experiment was conducted in seven European countries, and I use that data in my dissertation.
