Media and the ‘Miracle of Munich’: British Media Reports on the Munich Crisis, the Munich agreement, and its consequences

Chiesa, André LU (2016) HISK01 20162
History
Abstract
Using agenda setting theory, I have conducted a content analysis of British local newspaper articles to analyze reports regarding the Munich Agreement, which was signed September 30th, 1938. The theory is based on the assumption that media "controls" the reality which is shared with the readers. In a pre-digital society, local media outlets had far greater influence over the public agenda than they have today.

The aim was not only to see how British newspapers reported on the agreement and the British role in the negotiations, but also to identify any differences between different newspapers, with regards to such reports.
