Picturing Immigration: Photojournalistic Representation of Immigrants in Greek and Spanish Press Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

 
In recent years Greece and Spain have seen an influx of immigrants from nearby developing nations. And as their foreign populations grew, both countries' national medias documented the change and, in the process, shaped perceptions of the immigrant groups by their new countries and the world.      
 
Picturing Immigration offers a comparative study of the photojournalistic framing of immigrants in these two southern European nations. Going beyond traditional media analysis, it focuses on images rather than text to explore a host of hot topics, including media representation of minorities, immigration, and stereotypes.

About the Author

 

Athanasia Batziou teaches in the Department of Communication and Media at the University of Athens, Greece.
