At the latest, framing and frames have entered the public discourse since the scandalous framing report of the German public broadcaster ARD in February 2019. Based on models from the field of sociology, psychology, and communication studies – and particularly inspired by the the works of Erving Goffman (Goffman 1974), Charles Fillmore (Fillmore 1976) and Marvin Minsky (Minsky 1980) – ‘frames’ describe how people understand, react to and are influenced by situations and activities (frame analysis). The phenomenon of ‘framing’ assesses how individuals or institutions might use, modify or challenge existing frameworks by creating new frames. Thus, the concept of framing is a useful tool for a broad range of disciplines, especially in communication and media studies (Müller / Geise 2015; Ziem 2014) and linguistics (Busse 2012).
