Kommunikation und Kohäsion

The Hamburg section of the Research Institute Social Cohesion will host the next Leibniz Media Lunch Talk. Daniel Stegmann, research associate at the Department for Communication at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz, will discuss a framework that can be used to test the integration function of the media empirically.
PD Dr. Jan-Hinrik Schmidt will provide the introduction. The event will be held in German. 


12:00 to 1:00 p.m.


If you would like to participate, please register by using this form. We will send you the registration data for Zoom shortly before the event.

About the Talk

The question of social cohesion is one of the defining issues of the last few years. In this context, a key role is attributed to the media through their integrative function: It is assumed that the common use of media brings society together whereas, negatively turned, a fragmentation of media use in the high-choice media environment holds a substantial potential for division. Considering the postulated immense importance of media for society, it is surprising that there is a lot of theoretical work on the integrative role of media, but only few that systematically test this assumption empirically. In the presentation, a framework will be presented with which the integrative function of the media can be tested empirically.

About the Speaker

Daniel Stegmann has been a research assistant at the Department for Communication at the Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz since January 2020, where he conducts research on the topics of the power of opinion and diversity, fragmentation and media trust. He is writing his dissertation on the question of what role the media play in social cohesion. 

Leibniz Media Lunch Talks

At the Leibniz Media Lunch Talks, researchers present current topics, interim results from their research projects or doctoral projects in a relaxed atmosphere. You are welcome to enjoy your lunch while the talk is taking place.
