Project: Who cares? A quantitative and qualitative multi-method study of Flemish audience’s perceptions of and reactions to mediated distant suffering.
01/01/14 – 31/10/18
Applying an interdisciplinary approach, this project investigates audience’s perceptions of and responses to mediated distant suffering through a
combination of expert interviews, a quantitative audience survey and focus group interviews for a Flemish context. How do media texts affect and interact with people’s discourses, moral/emotional positions and discursive practices of media consumption related to human suffering?
