Research title: Media, Public Discourse and the Miners' Strike 1984-85
How did coverage of the miners’ strike 1984-5 differ across news media? Starting with this question my research explores key moments of the strike through an examination of local, regional and national media coverage. It questions how dominant narratives were created and maintained across news media and the implications of this for the outcome of the miners’ strike.
The theme of this project, will also link to contemporary debates about hegemony and media bias, highlighting the continued relevance of these issues.
