Journalism, Globalisation and Development
Module code: JNL6027
This module examines the relationship between journalism and the main challenges of globalisation and development. It analyses the place of journalism in the globally interconnected, and yet divided world.
Through the discussion of key theoretical concepts and specific examples of media narratives from different parts of the world, the module explores ways in which media can assist people and communities to meet wellbeing challenges, and critically assesses why global media represent globalisation and development issues in a certain manner.
The module will study media representations of the north/south divide; coverage of humanitarian crises and major global issues; the relationship between journalism and political imagining of distant others; and the potential of new media technologies to facilitate activism and social change.
