Media, Communications and Culture is currently hosting a visiting research fellow, Damian Guzek, who is working in the area of media, religion and politics. Damian is an assistant professor at the Institute of Political Science and Journalism, University of Silesia in Katowice (Poland). His visit is part of a research project entitled ‘Media towards the idea of the secular state’, financed by the National Science Centre in Poland.
Damian will be presenting some of his work on depictions of the London 7/7 bombing in the British, American and Polish press on Monday 10th October at 4.30pm in CM0.12, Claus Moser Research Centre.
This presentation provides the setting for a comparative analysis of the press coverage of London bombings, focussing in particular on religious issues, in leading newspapers, from the UK, the USA, and Poland. He focuses on network agenda setting, instead of the individual attributes of the media agenda, and in doing so, his work provides a more precise view of dynamics of the press coverage of London 7/7.
