At the beginning of 2020, thanks to a C.M. Lerici Foundation scholarship, Michele Calamaio spent few months at the Mid Sweden University in Sunsdvall for a research project called “The framing of Terrorism on audiences: Swedish Media Governance in the construction of news towards national Far-right and Islamic-religious extremism”.
The project was a journalistic reportage-based research thesis, meaning a project that has adopted, apart from the typical research writing, the audio-visual and narrative journalistic settings in the processing of both the final academic and media product.
The main topic of investigation has been the Swedish Media Governance, taken into consideration from the construction of news when it comes to far-right and Islamic-religious framing of terrorism distributed in 4 main cases.
