Abstract

Elizabeth Poole and Milly Williamson examine UK newspaper coverage of Muslims during the first wave of the pandemic. They find such coverage ultimately reinforced the hegemonic representational framework that has developed since 9/11 by drawing on wider longstanding tropes in which marginalized groups are ‘othered’, subject to moral panics, and accused of refusing to integrate.
