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.
