After 9/11: TV News and Transnational Audiences

The University of Wales in the UK will mark the first anniversary of 9/11 by hosting an international conference about TV news and transnational audiences. According to conference organizers, "The news media are central arenas of political conflict and public debate. The proliferation of satellite news channels brings new transnational configurations of audiences into being that may have unpredictable consequences for states, governance and citizenship. This conference will bring together academics, journalists and policy-makers to analyse and evaluate the role played by television news in mediating the events of September 11 and ensuing conflicts."
