On the Depiction of Southeast Asia in Western Media

Tue, Oct 11, 2005

Free admission

Who decides which news and what images make it into our media, and how are these decisions made? Does this selection process actually reflect an interest in Southeast Asia, or does it satisfy certain needs that, in the end, lie in the nature of our own society?

Academics, editors and journalists from Europe and Asia discuss the depiction of Southeast Asia in Western media.

Participants: Carolin Emcke, Journalistin, Der Spiegel Hendra Pasuhuk, Korrespondent für Deutsche Welle

Dr. Wolfgang Herles, aspekte, ZDF

Moderation: Michael Crone; Hessischer Rundfunk, Leitung Abteilung Dokumentation und Archive
