Fritt Ord Foundation Oxford grant for 2019 awarded to Thea Storøy Elnan
At the Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, Thea Storøy Elnan will be investigating whether the #metoo campaign has changed the way in which journalists in Norway, Sweden and the UK write about sexual harassment and the victims of abuse. What consequences has the #metoo campaign had on press ethics? How professional are the media in their coverage of incidents of sexual harassment and, in the wake of the campaign, how aware are journalists of the real price people pay when they come forward and talk about such experiences?
Thea Elnan (born 1989) works as a journalist in the cultural affairs section of the daily newspaper Aftenposten. She has a master’s degree in political science from the University of Oslo. The grant to study at Oxford is for the period from January to July 2019.
