|Information about your thesis
||Judy’s PhD research draws on three bodies of literature: critiques of the media’s role in covering the war (including US, UK and Australian writings from journalists, academics and the memoirs of former participants); literature on agenda setting and framing (second level agenda setting); and the literature around the role of the media in a democracy.
Judy’s field work will be in two phases: content analysis (mapping voices and themes in articles that appeared in the Australian and Sydney Morning Herald at critical periods before and during the war), followed by interviews with selected journalists.
