This week! Media and Democracy Facing Challenges to a Free Press
Wednesday, March 29, 7 p.m. at the Danish American Center, 3030 West River Parkway, Minneapolis.
"Fake news" and media control are challenging media in the U.S. as well as in Finland and Sweden, where freedom of the press is even older than in the U.S. What does this mean for the relations between media and democracy? How is traditional media--radio, television, press--changing in the age of social media? What kind of a critical role can more experimental media forms such as documentary cinema play in democracy?
Join Prof. Anu Koivunen from Stockholm University and Prof. Ilona Hongisto from Macquarie University and University of Melbourne, Australia, as they discuss these topics in a program, "Media and Democracy: The Current View from the Nordic Countries." Free event. Co-sponsored by the Honorary Consul of Finland in Minnesota, Finlandia Foundation Twin Cities, and the Danish American Center, with support from the Government of Finland & David and Nancy Speer Visiting Professorship of Finnish Studies.
The next FACA program will be April 21, 7:00 p.m.
International Institute of Minnesota
