Camilla Bjarnøe Jensen
Camilla is currently wrapping up her Dissertation about framing and reframing of policy questions in which she focuses on the link between frames, their policy positions, and political parties ( ‘the triangle of frames in communication’). She is Post Doc on the Communication and Public Engagement project, focusing on the role of conflict framing and conflict avoidance for interpersonal communication and participation.

Jakob is working on his dissertation which focuses on whether a new media environment also shapes new citizens. He is thereby especially interested to explore how the exposure to information on social media affects the participation of citizens in a society. Since mobile communication is one of his other research interests, the assessment of exposure to information on social media is measured with a newly developed app. More about Jakob here: http://sdu.dk/staff/ohme.
In his dissertation Kim examines how entertainment in news dissemination affect citizens’ political engagement. In addition Kim is doing research on effects of interpersonal political communication and different methodological issues in relation to communication research, such as measuring media use and conducting content analyses.
