New publication: The Module Lecture Guide: manual for teachers of journalism on how to write about migration…

The Module Lecture Guide is a manual designed principally for teachers of journalism and media studies at universities, but students of journalism and professional journalists can also use it. The manual is composed of four independent chapters that discuss working with journalism students in individual partner countries (Czechia, United Kingdom, Italy and Spain), and thereby attempts to respect specific conditions and characteristic data in individual countries. Aside from framing member states within the global map of international migration, the manual also contains an overview of basic migration vocabulary, including meanings, and a discussion of the migratory discourse in local media. The MLG is concerned with the personality of the journalist and her/his influence on the image of foreigners and international migration in the media. The MLG also attends to the question of approaching marginal topics, or how a topic can be chosen and conveyed in an ethical way. Furthermore, it deals with challenges that appear to lie in the actual work of the journalist with a migrant, and their method of contacting and communicating with her/him.

In Italy, as in other  European countries, public transports are overcrowded by people of different communities.

But how this sort of “forced cohabitation” is felt by host community members and third countries nationals daily travelling by bus, train or underground? May  public transports be a place of possible interaction and integration?

Some of the “Face2Face” participants in Italy found out answers to this questions interviewing some passengers of the bus line 90-91 of Milan, one of the most populated by migrants and citizens in the 24 hours.

BLOG: Beyond the stereotypes: the EU Agenda for Integration and the Project “Face2Face”

http://europa.eu/about-eu/basic-information/symbols/images/flag_yellow_low.jpgLiquid modernity and new economic challenges have surely extended the concept of “immigration”: this term has acquired many different gradations of meaning, and nowadays it represents the main input for social changes in our cities. Immigration has become one of the key topics in governments’ agenda: even though there are still many different approaches about the matter in Europe, it surely can’t be politically ignored.

 

Migration and integration issues are highly relevant socially, politically and economically speaking. Populism and immigration, for example, have always had a solid relationship in the political scenario and in the media.
