PeaceTalk: Researching Emotions in Politics”


PeaceTalk: Genç Akademisyen Seminer Serisi kapsamında 18 Aralık Cuma günü saat 12:30’da Hacettepe Üniversitesi Uluslararası İlişkiler Bölümü Doktora Öğrencisi İrem Karamık konuk konuşmacı olarak katılmış, “Researching Emotions in Politics” başlıklı çalışmasını öğrenci ve akademisyenlerle paylaşmıştır:

This research detects and examines emotions embedded in the media coverage of European Union’s Migration, Security and Defence Policies. Emotions towards the coverage of these policies are vital since they have undeniable implications in social inclusion, exclusion and policymaking. The identification of the emotions towards these policies helps to create a reference point for future policies and predict their implications and the responses towards the policies better. This research intends to draw the emotional map of specifically the EU policies that are intensified as a response to 2015 Syrian refugee flow. To this end, this study conducts a media content analysis on the articles published in The Telegraph between 2015 and 2018. Emotional expressions are analysed according to their valence (positive/negative), emotion regulation (implicit/explicit) and level (individual/collective). In the light of the outcomes derived from the analysis, this research discusses the relationship between emotions and their reflections in media, the role of media, politics of fear and securitization of migration.
