A review of Covering Muslims in the form of a dialogue with Elisabeth Ivarsflaten and Paul Sniderman, authors of The Struggle for Inclusion.
A short piece for the EUI’s Migration Policy Centre about tone-checking the media (and, in particular, articles about Muslims).
Coverage of our book’s findings inspired by our piece in The Conversation.
We published a short piece focusing on two important take-away messages from the book: 1) Coverage of Muslims is much more negative than that of other religious groups, and 2) This pattern holds across English-speaking countries in the Global North (i.e. it is not U.S.-specific).
The piece was republished in a number of outlets in several countries.
Erik presented key findings from the book in a public talk at Sciences Po Lyon

Our book opens with a joke by the very funny comedian Maz Jobrani, about the negativity of Muslim media coverage. Jobrani and and his co-host Tehran interviewed us for their podcast, Back to School with Maz Jobrani.

STAIR Lab is a computational social science lab conducting collaborative research with undergraduate students at William & Mary.

The Media Portrayals of Minorities Project at Middlebury College uses digital sources to better understand depictions of minorities in the media. Our goal is to track and explain how and why media representations of groups shift over time, vary across place, or compare to one another.
