After September 11: TV News and Transnational Audiences
9 to 11 September 2002, University of Wales, Swansea, United Kingdom

Co-organised by the British Film Institute, Open

The news media are central arenas of political conflict
and public debate. The proliferation of satellite news
channels brings new transnational configurations of
audiences into being that may have unpredictable
consequences for states, governance and citizenship.
This conference will bring together academics, journalists
and policy-makers to analyse and evaluate the role
played by television news in mediating the events of
September 11 and ensuing conflicts. It will examine
diverse audiences and competing narratives of causes
and consequences.

* The political management of news agendas and
audiences
