Sammanfattning: The aim of this bachelor thesis was to examine how the Swedish- and American daily press portrayed the young activist Greta Thunberg in their news coverage between the period of August 2019 and October 2019. Our research questions purposely intend to define how Greta Thunberg gets depicted, and to which extent the daily press insinuate her to be the face the climate movement through personation. By defining these aspects, we can therefor highlight and compare any similarities and differences presented. In order to fulfill the purpose of the study, we used a framing analysis to a selection of 66 news articles in total. These were divided by two different newspapers from each country; 21 articles from Dagens Nyheter, 24 articles from Svenska Dagbladet, 11 articles from The New York Times and 10 articles from The Washington Post. Each article was coded and categorized using a coding scheme until no more patterns or themes could be detected. Our study shows that both the Swedish- and the American daily press portrayed Greta Thunberg as a leading figure and the face of the new global climate movement. Both countries also portrayed those in power as the main cause of the problem and Thunberg and her advocacy as the resolution.
