New research project at our department

Starting March 2020, the Anniversary Fund of the Central Bank of the Republic of Austria (OeNB) will provide the funding for Sophie Lecheler's and Loes Aaldering's project "Immersive Journalism – The Future of News?".

In this project, Sophie Lecheler and Loes Aaldering will study the visibility and effects of immersive news production. This will include a number of studies, such as an experimental study on possible emotional backfire effects of immersive news production.

The project team also includes a new PhD student, Hannah Greber, who joins the Political Communication Group as the project commences. The project will run from 2020-2022.
