Abstract [sv]

Key words: Terrorism, Islam, September 11, content analysis The aim of this essay is to investigate whether the description of Muslims in Swedish newspapers has changed after September 11, 2001. By doing a content analysis of Dagens Nyheter and Svenska Dagbladet, I have investigated the newspapers’ international pages and the series of articles that followed regarding the attacks on the US. I have investigated articles published in the period between September 12 and 16 of 2000, 2001 and 2004. The investigation made clear that the use of words related to terrorism increased remarkably directly after September 11. The increase of words related to Islam was large, but these words did not increase to the same extent as the words related to terrorism did. However, the changes lasted over time, as the investigated period of 2004 showed an increase of the amount of both words used, in comparison to the amount of words used during the investigated period in 2000. Whether there is a connection between the amount of words related to terrorism used and words such as Muslim, my investigation do not tell. In one sense, the investigation shows that there is no clear correlation between the increasing use of words connected to either terrorism or Islam.
