NEWS..... MASTERS IN JOURNALISM
New from the Glasgow Media Group, a Masters course in International Journalism and Communications which combines media analysis, contemporary research techniques and training in practical media skills. The course is taught in Glasgow University by Professor Greg Philo and colleagues from September 2015. For more details follow THIS LINK.
The Glasgow Media Group’s latest book, Bad News for Refugees, by Greg Philo, Emma Briant and Pauline Donald is a political, economic and environmental look at how migrants have been stigmatised in political rhetoric and media coverage.
“This is an enormously important book that documents with meticulous scholarship the way in which immigrants have been stigmatised by the British media. It offers a compelling analysis of what is omitted from media accounts, which voices are left unheard, how simplifications and stereotypes are generated, and the consequences of this prejudiced reporting for immigrant communities who feel themselves to be under constant attack.”
