About this Event

In this talk, Nick Couldry (Goldsmiths, University of London) will consider what can be learned for media analysis from work on the ethics of recognition (Honneth’s work in social theory and Ricoeur’s work in ethics). His discussion will draw on his previous work on media ethics and on media rituals, and address also specific topics including the question: can there/ should there be an ethics of reality TV?
