About Åsa Kroon

My research areas include

Broadcasting & new media
Interview practices and journalism
Broadcast talk
Gender and the media
Communicative perspectives on the relations between journalism and politics

My latest research interest concerns gambling advertising.

What does it really mean to be "moderate" (Sw. måttfull) in gambling ads as the new Gambling Act (2019) states?

 

I am the Programme Head for our Masters in Strategic Communication,  and I also supervise and examine independent projects, mostly on the Bachelor level.

 Currently, I have an assignment as vice Head of School for 20% of my time with responsibility for gender issues and working conditions at the School.
