Populism, Media and Education : Challenging Discrimination in Contemporary Digital Societies (Hardcover)
About this item
Globalization and migration have led to a new era of populism and racism in Western countries, rekindling traditional forms of discrimination through innovative means. This book investigates how discriminatory stereotypes are built online, and how media education can help to deconstruct hate speech and promote young people’s full participation in media-saturated societies. Drawing on rich examples from Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, France, Italy, Slovenia, and the UK - countries characterized by different political and cultural contexts – it addresses key questions about the meaning of new populism, the nature of e-engagement, and the role of education and citizenship in the digital century.
