World media environment and multicivilizational literacy

About the event

The world media is increasingly broadened by new international media actors but is continuously dominated by the Western approach. The demands of independent and critical media challenge both American and European journalistic culture. On another note, military operations and new non-state actors also characterise the content and flow of international information. War propaganda has been known for centuries but the new world order includes also civilizational challenges. In this context, the need for multicultural communication broadens into multicivilisational literacy.

This conversation between Professor Tapio Varis and Paolo Celot will dive deep into this concept and the causes that make it relevant today.
