According to former French President Jacques Chirac, the need for prominence on the transnational communication circuit is leading both nations and cultures to enter into the "global battle of images." This new course begins by analysing the role of international journalism in contemporary history and places special emphasis on the coverage of armed conflict. From war reporting, the course takes a detailed look at the figure of the foreign correspondent as an intercultural mediator and examines the construction of "the Other" in the international press by closely examining the media portrayal of Islam, the Middle Eastern conflict and the image of Spain in the foreign media. The course moves into the field of global media by analysing both the traditional Anglo-American news management of world events before presenting the challenges led to this supremacy by news networks such as the Arab world's Al-Jazeera, Latin America's Telesur project and the launching of the France 24 network and posing the question how does the future of the world news system shape up?
