Abstract:After 9/11, public concerns about terrorism in the United States escalated. In the next years, the threat of terrorism prompted several far-reaching foreign and domestic policies, including the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the massive increases in federal defense spending, upgraded security measures in all areas of the critical infrastructure, reductions in civil liberties and shifts in immigration policy. Given the significance of these changes, it is important to learn more about how the public perceives the threat of terrorism. The general goal of this dissertation is to investigate the social and psychological processes that affect people's responses to the threat. Specifically, I use an exploratory, experimental study to identify the types of news portrayals ("frames") that increase people's worries and risk judgments about terrorism. Drawing on a quantitative content analysis, I also attempt to explain when and under what circumstances fear-inducing news frames appear in the elite press in the United States.
