Lost in Media

Our book ‘Lost in Media: Migrant Perspectives and the Public Sphere’ gathers critical responses to the representations of migrants in the media in Europe through nine essays by prominent writers, artists and journalists. Ever since the 'migrant crisis' hit the headlines in 2015, migrant perspectives have been lost in mainstream media. If migrants do appear in media coverage they are represented as characters in other people’s stories, or as something other.
