About Hanna Hallin
Hanna Hallin is a Ph.D. candidate in media and communication studies. The starting-point for her research is the contradiction between endless economic growth and keeping humanity within the planetary boundaries. She investigates discursive aspects of economic practices by looking at different societal discourses where this contradiction between ‘sustainability’ and economic activity is negotiated. A central concern is the role of corporate strategic communication in promoting some discourses at the expense of other. Hanna has previously conducted research on the mediated image of economic growth in news and is interested in the intersection of economy, politics and communication.
