Open seminar Media and Migration 25 January

Föreningen för svensk medie- och kommunikationsforskning (FSMK) together with K3 Malmö University presents:
Open seminar on Media and Migration 25th January 2017
The international refugee crisis has had a profound impact on the public discourses on immigration, as well as on the rise of political forces mainly focusing on immigration and immigrants. What role does news media and other form of citizen engaged media practices play in the public discourse on migration and immigrants? What key challenges are news media and media researchers facing?
These are some of the questions addressed in the seminar Media and Migration, where both academic researchers (with various experience of migration related issues) and journalists who are currently covering migration in their daily work, will participate in a round table discussion. 
Participants:
Federico Rodriguez Moreno, journalist KVP/Expressen
Pieter Bevelander, professor International migration, Malmö University
Erin Cory, postdoctoral researcher in media and communication studies, Malmö University
Jesper Strömbäck, professor in journalism, media and communication studies, University of Gothenburg
Emma Leijnse, journalist, Sydsvenskan
Time: 25 January 2017, 13.00-15.00
Location:  Malmö University, Niagara, Nordenskjöldsgatan 1, NI:C0E11 (ground floor).
