The Media and Reconciliation

  • How do traditional media impact our worldviews and self-definitions?
  • What are the roles of ethnic and language media in the 21st century?
  • How do new/social media impact communication and community-building in the U.S. and around the world?

The 2015 Annual Symposium on Reconciliation:  The Media and Reconciliation will explore how traditional and new media impact our understanding of ourselves and each other to prepare for the serious work of reconciliation.   Scholars, practitioners, and community leaders will share research and experiential perspectives on traditional media, culture and language diverse media and new media.
