Israel-Palestine in the Print News Media: Conflict and Representation in the Middle East

18 Nov 2014


Dr. Luke Peterson will discuss his newly published book Palestine-Israel in the Print News Media: Contending Discourses in which he argues for the existence of national perspectives conditioning international events which are constructed, distributed, and reinforced in the print news media. Dr. Peterson will connect his research on representations of Palestine-Israel in recent conflict events with the ongoing news media portrayals of the Islamic State and American intervention in the Middle East throughout the course of the twenty-first century.
