Professor emeritus Christine Ogan spoke at a panel in Bilbao, Spain, for the European Communication Research and Education Association conference, “Diaspora, Migration and The Media.”

The panel was based on a paper, “The Role of the U.S. Press in Promoting Differing Views of Immigrants and Refugees in the 2016 Election,” written by Ogan; Rosemary Pennington, MA’10, PhD’15, assistant professor at Miami University; Olesya Venger, assistant professor at the University of Nevada-Las Vegas; and Daniel Metz, BAJ’17, graduate student at Hacettepe University in Ankara, Turkey.

This content analysis of 12 national and regional U.S. news sources from the start of the 2016 Republican National Convention to Election Day focuses on how the issue of migration was framed by the media during the run-up to the election.
