Media Power and Religions

The Challenge Facing Intercultural Dialogue and Learning

by Manfred Pirner (Volume editor) Johannes Lähnemann (Volume editor)
Edited Collection 161 Pages

Summary

There can be no doubt about the high relevance of public media for the image we have of religion in general and certain religions in particular. Yet, it seems that the topic has long been neglected in academic research and discourse. This volume brings together multi-disciplinary perspectives, presented by internationally reputed experts. They offer illuminating analyses on the various interrelations between media and religions in the fields of human rights, anti-Islamism and anti-Semitism, on religions’ potential to foster peace and to contribute to media ethics and media education in pluralistic societies. The book also provides helpful orientation and concrete suggestions for journalistic and educational practice, academic research, political and social involvement.
