Description
Through audiovisual storytelling, theories of mediatization can be illustrated for analysis of fiction as vehicle for amplification of emotions in contemporary society. The project will relate to an overarching topic of how a public may apprehend Islam/Muslims in a stereotypical manner but also how fiction could be used to increase more nuanced imagery of Muslim positions
