Abstract [en]

The purpose of this article is to investigate how Swedish andUS elite newspapers framed the publication of cartoons of theMuslim prophet Mohammad in a Danish newspaper in September 2005,and the events that ensued from that publication. These cartoonsproved to be very controversial, and, since the original publicationhas been reprinted several times, continue to stir controversy.In order to investigate how different frames emerged in thenews coverage, the study includes all news articles publishedin the selected newspapers during a six-month period from thefirst publication of the Mohammad cartoons. Methodologically,the study uses quantitative and qualitative content analysis.Theoretically, the study is based on framing theory and internationalnews determinants. The results show some interesting differencesas well as similarities. In the conclusions, four propositionsthat might be explored in future research are offered.
