This book presents pioneering research on the impact of new media on the Palestinian Diaspora, and is the result of unprecedented access to the Palestinian community in the United Kingdom. It explores issues of politics, conflict resolution, new media and daily life experiences of the dispersed Palestinian people. The research is linked to the contemporary phenomenon of the large immigration wave from the Middle East and Africa to Europe, and the increasing use in internet and smart phone applications by immigrants. As the book shows, new technology empowers the Palestinian people, enables their global visibility, and strengthens democratic values in this society. It deals with the impact of new media on the Palestinian Diaspora, from the emergence of satellite television channels and the internet to the development of social networks and smart phone applications. During the research period, internet and smart phone usage of Palestinians in the UK was higher than the usage in Gaza and the West Bank. In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the use of digital and information technology in Gaza and the West Bank. The book will primarily appeal to international scholars specializing in media, the Middle East, diaspora and migration, political science, and peace and conflict studies. It will also be of interest to those involved in politics and new media, as well as government decision- makers, and legislators.

After the fall of the Iron Curtain in 1989, millions of Romanians emigrated in search of work and new experiences; they became engaged in an interrogation of what it meant to be Romanian in a united Europe and the globalized world. Their thoughts, feelings and hopes soon began to populate the virtual world of digital and mobile technologies. This book chronicles the online cultural and political expressions of the Romanian diaspora using websites based in Europe and North America. Through online exchanges, Romanians perform new types of citizenship, articulated from the margins of the political field. The politicization of their diasporic condition is manifested through written and public protests against discriminatory work legislation, mobilization, lobbying, cultural promotion and setting up associations and political parties that are proof of the gradual institutionalization of informal communications. Online discourse analysis, supplemented by interviews with migrants, poets and politicians involved in the process of defining new diasporic identities, provide the basis of this book, which defines the new cultural and political practices of the Romanian diaspora.

The production and consumption of news in the digital era is blurring the boundaries between professionals, citizens and activists. Actors producing information are multiplying, but still media companies hold central position. Journalism research faces important challenges to capture, examine, and understand the current news environment. The SAGE Handbook of Digital Journalism starts from the pressing need for a thorough and bold debate to redefine the assumptions of research in the changing field of journalism. The 38 chapters, written by a team of global experts, are organised into four key areas: Section A: Changing Contexts Section B: News Practices in the Digital Era Section C: Conceptualizations of Journalism Section D: Research Strategies By addressing both institutional and non-institutional news production and providing ample attention to the question ‘who is a journalist?’ and the changing practices of news audiences in the digital era, this Handbook shapes the field and defines the roadmap for the research challenges that scholars will face in the coming decades.

Se recogen en Las patrias ausentes varios artículos publicados en diversas revistas y libros colectivos de Europa y América a lo largo de los primeros tres lustros del siglo xxi, cuyo denominador común es la historia de las migraciones ibéricas y, particularmente, las migraciones gallegas a América entre 1850 y 1960. Se agrupan en torno a tres ejes temáticos. Primero, la reflexión historiográfica y comparativa acerca del pasado de las migraciones ibéricas, abordando cuestiones como las fuentes epistolares, la migración de retorno o la construcción de liderazgos en las comunidades emigrantes. Segundo, el estudio de las imágenes, los estereotipos y las representaciones de los colectivos migrantes, así como de sus identidades colectivas de índole territorial. Y, tercero, diversos aspectos de la historia de las migraciones gallega a América Latina, como la inserción social de los gallegos en la Argentina, la articulación de espacios asociativos en Argentina y Cuba, y el papel de la prensa en la conformación de una esfera pública emigrante capaz de influir en los destinos del país de origen. Todos los ensayos responden a un enfoque centrado en la historia sociocultural del fenómeno migratorio, que busca aprehender sus dinámicas sociales, grupales e identitarias mediante la combinación de la mirada local con la global, de la microhistoria con la reflexión teórica, de la visión desde Europa con la perspectiva desde las sociedades de destino americanas. Y tiene como objetivo dar protagonismo a los actores de los procesos migratorios, en particular a los migrantes individuales y sus estrategias.

Muslims have featured in many of the more significant news stories of the past few years – yet shockingly very few of these stories have been about anything other than the ‘war on terror’. This urgently relevant book examines the role and representations of Muslims in the news media particularly within a climate of threat, fear and misunderstanding. Written by both academic authorities and media practitioners, Muslims and the News Media is designed as a comprehensive and critical textbook and is set in both the British and international context. Bringing together a range of insightful perspectives on the subject into a coherent whole, the book clearly establishes the links between context, content, production and audiences, thus reflecting the entire cycle of the communication process. It reveals both the ways in which meaning is produced and reproduced in the news media, and the ways in which audiences themselves, both Muslim and non-Muslim, use or consume this media. Significant too and discussed here is the role of Muslims themselves in the processes of news production. Clarifying the circumstances and politics surrounding the representation of Muslims across a range of journalistic genres, Muslims and the News Media provides crucial insights into the representation – and misrepresentation – of Islam and Muslims today. ‘Timely and comprehensive, this book covers all aspects of representation of Muslims in contemporary Western media. Impressively, it also attempts to answer fundamental questions about a multicultural Europe...Essential reading for every current affairs and news editor.’ Daphna Baram, author of Disenchantment: The Guardian and Israel ‘ Muslims and the News Media provides a much-needed, authoritative and wide-ranging set of interventions both documenting and challenging the democratic deficits, as well as analyzing new democratizing possibilities, that characterize today’s news media. This is a most timely and important work indeed.’ Professor Simon Cottle, Director, Media and Communications Program, University of Melbourne

Dominance, identity and resistance are key themes in this volume in which contributors examine language in global, virtual and local settings. Power is highly contextual and the chapters focus on concepts such as world languages, linguistic rights and minority protection. Migrants and their vernaculars feature prominently and several case studies explore the social strategies employed by speakers on non-indigenous tongues. Religion and belief are key underlying themes in the final chapters, which analyze the misunderstandings that can occur in sensitive political contexts.
