A Journalism Course that may be of interest to HHH Students

From border walls to refugee camps, comparing news media and public debates over migration in North America and the European Union.

The refugee crisis across the Mediterranean and the continued challenges at the US-Mexican border are the most visible global hot spots in one of the most contested public and political issues of our time, one that raises fundamental questions about human rights, national identity, security and multiculturalism—all in the glare of news media themselves undergoing dramatic transformations.


In the graduate seminar JOUR8681 in Spring 2017, we will use approaches from mass communication, international relations, and comparative politics to study the role that the news media play in the public debates over migration at the southern borders of the United States and the European Union.
The class will bring together an array of guest lecturers, from scholars to practitioners, to examine the political, historical, legal, social and cultural perspectives of the problematic of the media and immigration. 
Note: The class is scheduled to meet Tu/Th from 11:15-12:30 pm, but if all students agree, we will try to arrange a single weekly meeting time (either from 9:30-12:30 or from 11:15-2:15 on either Tuesday or Thursday).
