NYU to Host “Shaping Immigration News: A French-American Comparison”—Nov. 6 Roundtable

October 7, 2013

New York University will host a roundtable discussion, “Shaping Immigration News: A French-American Comparison,” on Wed., Nov. 6, 6:30 to 8 p.m. at NYU’s La Maison Française, 16 Washington Mews (at University Place/below 8th Street).

The event, which is free and open to the public, will feature Rodney Benson, author of the recently released Shaping Immigration News: A French-American Comparison. Joining Benson, an associate professor in the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication at NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, will be: Gaye Tuchman, author of Making News: A Study in the Construction of Reality; James Graff, executive editor of The Week and former Paris bureau chief of Time magazine; and Frederic Viguier, a clinical assistant professor at NYU’s Institute of French Studies.

In Shaping Immigration News, Benson draws on interviews with journalists and analyses of newspaper and television coverage in showing how the immigration debate has become increasingly focused on the dramatic, emotion-laden frames of humanitarianism and public order. This book offers a portrait of French and American journalists in action as they grapple with how to report and comment on one of the most important issues of our era—and finds enduring French-American differences related to the distinctive societal positions, professional logics, and internal structures of their journalistic fields.

Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, call 212.992.9492. Subways: N, R (8th Street); 6 (Astor Place).

The event is co-sponsored by NYU’s Institute of French Studies, NYU’s Department of Media, Culture, and Communication; NYU’s Institute for Public Knowledge, NYU’s Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute, and the French-American Foundation.

Reporters interested in attending any event must RSVP to James Devitt, NYU’s Office of Public Affairs, at 212.998.6808 or james.devitt@nyu.edu.
