Poor Relations: Australian News Media Representations of Ethnic Minorities, Implications and Responses
Jacqueline Ewart and Jillian Beard investigate the significant body of research into the ways various Australian mainstream news media have covered ethnic minorities and the issues that have arisen as a result of those representations. The chapter situates Australian research within the broader context of international literature, highlighting similar problematic news media representations of ethnic minorities in Western countries. Although ethnic minorities’ responses to Australian mainstream news media representations have attracted relatively little attention from researchers, this chapter examines how these groups actively manage representations in their own media spaces.
