MUCS (Media Use in Crisis Situations: Resolving Information Paradoxes, Comparing Climate Change and COVID-19) studies media use in complex societal crisis situations, comparing the pandemic and the climate crisis. The project is a collaboration between media studies, human geography and journalism studies. We analyze how people in Norway encounter these issues in everyday life and in the media, where information is abundant across digital platforms.
