Racism, Ethnicity and the Media inAfrica: Mediating Conflict in the Twenty-First Century (Published June 2015 by I.B.Tauris& Co Ltd)
Edited by: Winston Mano
In today's Africa racism andethnicity have been implicated in serious conflicts - from Egypt to Mali toSouth Africa - that have cost lives and undermined efforts to achieve nationalcohesion and meaningful development. Racism, Ethnicity and the Media in Africasets about rethinking the role of media and communication in perpetuating,reinforcing and reining in racism, absolute ethnicity and other discriminationsacross Africa. It goes beyond the customary discussion of media racism andethnic stereotyping to critically address broader issues of identity, belongingand exclusion. Topics covered include racism in South African newspapers,pluralist media debates in Kenya, media discourses on same-sex relations inUganda and ethnicised news coverage in Nigerian newspapers.Find out more here:
