Kibrom Berhane Gessesse

The study is intersectional analysis of media representation of immigrants in Norway. It is conducted based on stories reported by the online newspaper named The Local (Norway edition). To investigate the issue, the study employed content analysis of two news articles and a (“how-to”) feature article. The articles are selected purposively in terms of their contents and time of publication. Finally the study found out that in writing about immigrants (and their issues) the selected online newspaper employs intersection of representation mechanisms. It dominantly uses different classificatory terms, polemic representation, thematic anchoring and representations in antinomies.
