Abstract [sv]

Denna uppsats är en studie om nyhetsrapporteringen kring attentatet i Trollhättan 2015 och attacken i Stockholm 2017. Studien har med hjälp av en kvalitativ textanalys analyserat totalt tio stycken artiklar från Aftonbladet och Expressen. Båda dåden som analyseras i uppsatsen är enligt definition terrorism, dock blir endast ett av dåden benämnt som terrorism i media. Med hjälp av teoretiska perspektiv och tidigare forskning inom gestaltning, rasifiering och representation har studien belyst skillnader och likheter och vad som framhävs i medias rapportering kring terrorism för att ta reda på vem som kallas terrorist och inte.       För samtliga av studiens tio artiklar är det huvudsakliga syftet att sammanställa och återberätta de aktuella händelseförloppen. Sedan har studien genom valda metoder och teorier kunnat identifiera hur de två händelserna gestaltas. Genom en jämförande analys händelserna sinsemellan visade resultatet att tidningarnas gestaltning främjar en världsuppfattning om terrorism i enlighet med religionens tro.      

Abstract [en]

This paper is a study of news rapports about the acts of violence in Trollhättan 2015  and the attacks in Stockholm 2017. The study uses a qualitative text analysis in order to analyze a total of ten articles from the Swedish news papers Aftonbladet and Expressen. Both acts of violence can be defined as terrorism, but only one of these acts of violence have been called terrorism by the media. With the help of theoretical perspectives such as framing, racialization and representation, this paper acknowledges differences and similarities but also what media emphasizes when they report on terrorism; also which individual is deemed to be called a terrorist or not. For all ten articles analyzed in this study, the main purpose is to gather and retell the current events. By using content analysis and the theories mentioned above, this paper identified how the two events have been framed. By comparing the analyses of the two acts of violence, it is shown that; media depict and emphasize a worldview of terrorism in accordance with religious beliefs.
