News framing has been repeatedly shown not only to have an impact on people’s attitudes and behaviours but also to elicit effects that are persistent over time. Research also shows that some news frames are more emotionally arousing than others and elicit specific emotions. Despite this, attempts to explain framing effects rarely take emotions into account. Alina Feinholdt conducts a series of online survey experiments aimed at shedding light on the interplay between emotions and news framing. She takes into account different contextual and individual circumstances that may constrain the studied effects.
