Symposium Overview - Find more infomation at the

After September 11 2001, the diversity of transnational
television news channels consumed  across the world
became newsworthy in itself. News media are central
arenas of political conflict and public debate. They are
also active agents in struggles for political control and the
management of public knowledge. This symposium will
analyse and evaluate the successes and failures of an
array of television news services in mediating and
narrating the events of September 11, the war in/on
Afghanistan, and ensuing conflicts. It will examine how
different social, linguistic, religious and ethnic diaspora
groups use news media at times of political crisis. The
event will focus on the findings of new research on
transnational news agendas and audiences and there will
be a series of presentations and discussions involving
key scholars, journalists and broadcasters.
