The aim of this course is to introduce students to the complex and interconnected fields of media and migration. The students will gain in-depth knowledge on topics such as the news coverage of the 2015 ‘migration crisis’ and the ongoing media discussions since then; the importance of social media platforms in migration processes; or the question of transnational intimacy and identity. The course builds on both lectures and lively interactions, discussions and co-analysis of media texts. During the semester, there will also be a special guest who will be talking of her/his work in the field of migration.

Learning outcomes:
Students will be able to assess new information and knowledge critically.
Students will know the major trends and theories in the field of media and migration.
Students will be able to interact with the mediated aspect of migration through the lenses of basic human rights, cultural specificities and values of different groups.
