What role do the media play in Norwegian society? As the Nordic welfare states are changing, so is the relations between citizens, the media and democracy, and this course seeks to grasp the essence of these changes. The course explores Norwegian media institutions, texts, use and culture, drawing on cases from television, radio/podcasts, news media, social media, video games and film to critically discuss key features of the media in Norway, and to facilitate comparison across societies globally.
