Course Description: Since the refugee crisis in 2015, migration has become one of the most important topics of political debate in Europe. The seminar shows that the conflict has its roots not predominantly in cultural and political differences, but that the media and their presentation of refugees and migrants has played an important role in the process of political polarization. In order to understand the roots of the refugee crisis, the course looks at migration in Germany and at the representation of migration in German media in the second half of the twentieth century. It takes into account facts, figures, and statistics and analyzes German television programs (in translation), paying particular attention to political framing concerning the use of language and visual images.
