The media and terrorism are soul mates-virtually inseparable – terrorist spectacles are high profile, ratings-building events. This course examines the interplay of terrorism, the media, publics and the political process in the Middle East. We will look at how the media shapes and is shaped by terrorism and the concepts and theories relating to terrorism and the news production process, the agenda-setting nature of the news media, the interrelationship between journalists and public officials, media and terrorism. This course evaluates how different media sources provide information about terrorism, and the institutional arrangements between the media and governments, particularly in the aftermath of the Arab Spring.
