Editorial and Cultural Debates in Danish and Swedish Newspapers: Understanding the terror attacks in Paris and Copenhagen in early 2015

Abstract [en]

This chapter analyses Danish and Swedish editorial/op-ed and cultural opinion articles in the aftermath of the terror attacks in Paris and Copenhagen in early 2015. Based on a theoretical framework detailing agonistic democracy, and deliberative and antagonistic approaches, a quantitative analysis maps who voices opinions and what conflicts and contexts are evoked, pointing to similarities in how events are understood on a broader level. A qualitative analysis of polarizations, key concepts, reference points, and linguistic registers, specifying who is pictured as 'other' and how relationships to 'others' are imagined, indicates differences both between countries and between newspaper sections: While editorials, particularly Danish, often display one-sided stereotypical polarising antagonistic world-views, and Swedish artilces display tendencies to abandoning previous multicultural approaches, (particularly Swedish) cultural opinion articles evoke conflictual co-existence, drawing on multiple cultural/political/philosophical contexts, thereby underlining cultural journalism's crucial role for agonistic democracy in aglobalising world.
