NWO VIDI grant for Christian Burgers

Christian Burgers was awarded a prestigious 5-year NWO/VIDI Grant for his project “Contemporary Political Satire: Medium, Language and Impact of Satiric News”. Satiric news is often controversial by challenging current politicians. Burgers and his team will model how, across media, language use in satire is different from ‘regular’ genres like news, and how these differences in media and language use impact the public’s perception of the topic under discussion.
