Hello, my name is Peter M. Dahlgren. I write books, research, news, produce video and websites. Here's some of it.

Research Interest

How are people affected by using media? This is an old research question in the media effects tradition that I am particularly interested in. It contains persuasion, argumentation, political communication, social psychology and more.

In my doctoral thesis, I focus on how selective exposureconfirmation bias and motivated reasoning affects political polarization. In the media, it's often called filter bubbles or echo chambers.

Promoter of open science and member of Heterodox Academy.
