Narrative absences : an ethnographic exploration of NGO contributions to the discourse surrounding Ebola in broadcast TV news

With NGOs increasingly providing expert opinion to TV news to help us understand complex issues, I want to examine representations around the “othering” of disease in a post-colonial, Eurocentric context through the analysis of archive material used in broadcast packages around Ebola. I will also be using the archival records to see which viewpoints and interviews were discarded.

I intend to make a short film to go along with it, hopefully entirely out of archive material.
