Silje Hirsch

Silje Hirsch has recently finished her Cand. Polit degree (MA) in sociology at the University of Oslo. The topic of her theses is: “Two Norwegian Christian Newspapers’ Presentation of the Palestinian/Israeli Conflict”. The research method used is textual analyses with a main focus on narrative analyses. The focus is looking at which kind of stories the newspapers draw upon when they write about the conflict, how they describe the parts in the conflict, what kind of arguments they use and how they combine religion and politics in their argumentation. The theses combines elements from both theology, sociology of religion, media theory and language theory, and is therefore interdisciplinary. Her Cand. Mag. (BA) degree covered sociology, development studies and theology.
