The course will provide a structured approach to address different media systems. It will explore the dynamics of news, politics, conflicts and freedom of the press. Focusing on ongoing, international crises of global importance, we will examine how various international media report on topics including armed conflicts and human rights abuses. The course will examine the dynamics governing news, media, environment and structures. Students will try to understand why different audiences from different cultural spheres perceive the same news in sometimes a diametrically opposed way. Students will examine the rich arsenal of repression tools used by authoritarian and even democratic regimes to suppress press freedom or spin news to their advantage. This course will look at the ways and means by which courageous journalists try to circumvent these obstacles.

*Course is pending approval from CEA CAPA's School of Record.*
