Abstract

This Major Research Paper examines how two Québec newspapers, La Presse and the Montreal Gazette, reported on and explained the Québec City mosque shooting in their coverage during the first week following January 29th, 2017. First, by putting Muslim immigration and assimilation within the historical as well as socio-political context of Québec, this research will then adopt a cultural studies perspective to the news as an ideological and discursive tool to uncover how two representatives of the Québec news media framed the events and aftermath of the mosque shooting. This research employs content analysis and a “framing” approach to offer a deeper understanding of how these two newspapers made the Québec City mosque shooting intelligible and socially meaningful.
