- This case study shows how to employ a narrative methodology to study print news media stories of violent crime. It introduces narrative as a particularly useful approach to doing qualitative research for projects that are interested in how the media as an institutionalized narrator make sense of everyday events by locating them within time and space, and in what this can tell us about the social world which the media both operate in and shape. The case addresses the following key questions: What are the specific characteristics of (print) news media stories? What are potential pitfalls in archival research? How does one go about analyzing narrative media texts? Examples are drawn from my research on the media stories surrounding the crimes attributed to the German right-wing extremist group National Socialist Underground (NSU).
