About Åsa Kroon

Åsa Kroon is Professor of Media & Communication Studies at Örebro University. Her research interests have evolved over time and include the communicative development of media debates, the role and function of the interview in news journalism, the portrayal of male and female politicians in the media, and how new forms of audience address develop as broadcasting goes from traditional forms of TV to producing TV on and for the web. In the latter case, the sports genre has proven to be of particular interest as a frontrunner for new forms of audience address on the web.

Current research

Her latest research interests are equally varied: gambling advertisements and how these are multimodally designed to attract different kinds of audiences, and slow TV formats such as The Great Moose Migration on Swedish Television which captures moose in real time without any production interference 24/7 for 3 weeks straight. 

Åsa has an assignment as team leader for the research group Discourse, Communication & Media (DCM), one of the three research groups at the Media and Communications Department. 

Teaching

Åsa teaches mostly at the candidate and master's level, supervising and examining independent projects. She is the course head for the independent bachelor theses.
