Fear, Anger and Grief – Emotions in Migration Reporting
As collaboration between theory and practice, Sheila Mysorekar (Neue deutsche Medienmacher*innen) and Débora Medeiros (Freie Universität), invited Journalists to reflect on the question: What reporting methods are helpful in dealing with the challenges related to migration coverage? In this workshop, participants discussed how emotions are generated both textually and visually and how a nuanced way of presenting them can succeed. At the same time, they sharpened their eye for reporting that is as non-discriminatory as possible and allows for a multifaceted portrayal of events, also regarding the emotions of the various people involved. | April 28th & 29th 2022, Berlin.
