Fresh Global Media Players: Redistributing Media Power?

Project Description

This symposium hosted ten international media scholars from three continents. They explored the redistribution of world communication power from fresh vantage points, examining new voices and innovative players who are reshaping international news and entertainment.

Local students, media scholars, and industry professionals attended the two-day symposium and engaged in several wide-ranging discussions. The relevance for Qatar is obvious: Qataris are consuming a great amount of news and entertainment produced abroad, and this material is increasingly coming from world regions that had not previously been involved in media production.
