African Women in the Media symposium

July 27, 2017

AFRICAN WOMEN IN THE MEDIA: Engaging debates on issues affecting African women in the media

The symposium aims to bring together African women working in the media, and academics in the field of media and communications concerned with media, diaspora, race, gender, representation, and African feminism. The objectives are to engage in debates on issues affecting African women in the media, provide an opportunity for the exchange of ideas between academia and industry, and opportunities for networking.

With a focus on news media, the central questions the symposium will seek to answer are:

  • What challenges do African women working in the media face?
  • How are these challenges being addressed? How might they be?
  • How are African women represented in the media?

The long-term aim is to establish an action-orientated, supportive, and, empowering network that bridges academia and industry.
