Research Interests

Kristina Riegert's research interests have focused on factors that are important for how media in various countries represent the world: globalisation, propaganda, war and crisis situations, national and regional identities, links between transnational and national mediated spaces and journalist cultures. Most of her work has a comparative national or transnational approach. She subsequently developed an interest in political entertainment as part of the development of reality television, and in architecture as a vehicle of journalistic credibility in a mobile digital world. An abiding interest in Lebanon and the MENA-region developed into a project with Arabist Gail Ramsay, on the nature and impact of top bloggers in three Arab mediascapes. This study continues the comparative tradition but departs from the news media to study cultural citizenship and digital media use. A new area of interest is how Swedish cultural journalism in the press, television and radio has reflected globalization processes during the last three decades.
