Research Areas

My research areas are to be found in the field of political communication; in particular political rhetoric/language and propaganda, and political journalism (its output as well as its preconditions and governing ideas). This strand of research is situated in the intersection of political science perspectives on democracy and the public sphere on the one hand, and perspectives on journalism and media change derived from media studies on the other.

Keywords: Political communication, political journalism, political rhetoric and propaganda, election campaigns
