The subject of the course is the complex and changing relationship between politics and the media. Do the media simply reflect politics at the national and international level – or change politics profoundly? How are power relationships and political identities affected, within as well as across and between states? How do the media function during periods of crisis, when states collapse or are in transition, during civil wars and interstate wars or terrorist attacks?
Addressing such topics, the course is divided into three main blocks:
- Core theories and concepts of media and politics
- Comparative Political Communication
- War, terrorism and the Media
Emphasising developments during the post-cold war period, the effects of global communication networks based on internet and satellite technology are of particular interest.
It is not possible to combine the course with other courses.
