Anyone here Survived a Wave, Speak English and got a Mobile? Aid Agencies, the Media and Reporting Disasters since the Tsunami

Speaker: Glenda Cooper

Glenda Cooper was the Guardian Research Fellow at Nuffield College from 2006 to 2007.

This event is part of our Guardian Lecture Series

Guardian Research Fellow Glenda Copper delivers the 14th Guardian Lecture. The Lecture explores three key aspects of media coverage of disasters, namely; how citizen journalism is altering the reporting of disasters; how this in turn is altering the cosy relationship between journalists and aid agencies, blurring boundaries between the two; and why this matters: how media coverage has a direct effect on aid.

A transcript of the lecture can be found in 'Further Information'.
