JMG organizes an international symposium on journalism and populism
Together with Uppsala University, the Department of Journalism, Media and Communication (JMG) is organizing a symposium with leading international researchers on 4-5 February: Journalism, Media and the Normalization of (Right-Wing) Populism and Nativist Authoritarianism: Analysis of Practices and Counteracting Strategies before and during the COVID-19.
The general aim for the symposium is to discuss to what extent authoritarian and nativist populism posed very significant challenges to contemporary media and journalism, also in view of several new trajectories ignited by the COVID-19 crisis.
Over two days, more than 20 leading international researchers gather under topics such as:
- “Immigration and the Normalization of Racism: Discursive Shifts in Swedish Media and Politics” (led by Michał Krzyżanowski, Uppsala University, 2020-23)
- “Right-wing populism in the news media: A cross-cultural study of journalist practices and news discourse” (led by Mats Ekström, Gothenburg University, 2018-20).
