The ERaM (Ethnicity, Racism and the Media) Programme
 
The role of the mass media in generating and disseminating
representations of ethnicity, and in constructing popular and
elite conceptions of ethnic relations becomes ever more significant.
 
- How can we liberate the positive potential of the mass media
in multi-ethnic societies?
- How can we represent a non-ethnocentric world to both homogenous
and diverse communities?
- How can academics, media professionals and other concerned individuals =
 
communicate and co-ordinate their research in an increasingly disparate =
 
yet interdependent world?
 
The ERaM Programme, located at the University of Bradford (UK)
Department of Social and Economic Studies, utilises the new information =
 
technology of Email and the World Wide Web to provide a global forum and =
 
focus for discussion, information dissemination and research collaboratio=
n
on issues of racism, ethnicity and the media.
 
These issues include:
- The representation of ethnicity in the media.
- The recruitment and employment of ethnic minority persons in the media.
- The role of media owned by and/or aimed at ethnic minorities.

- The =91ERaM-LIST=92 email mailing list.
