Public Memory, Public Media, and the Politics of Justice

By Philip Lee, Pradip Thomas - 2012

This book aims to provide a context in which a clear link can be traced between the politics of memory and its manifold representations and misrepresentations in public media towards a viable politics of justice. The assumption is that public awareness and perceptions of injustice, whether they are political, economic or social, depend on the mass media of communication for recognition and valorization – including, today, new communication and information technologies such as social media platforms. How does the construction, representation and distortion of public memory affect the way we reat other people? How is policy-making influenced by the way the media conver conflict? Contributors explore the challenges and obstacles to affirming a universal right to memory on the long road to justice for all. Chapters by Germán Vargas, Claudia Feld, Joseph Nevins, Charles Villa-Vicencio, Rachel Ibreck, Anna Marie Reading, Aurélie Campana, Zala Volcic and Karmen Erjavec, and Hopeton S. Dunn plus an Introduction and Endnote by the editors.

Communication rights enable all people everywhere to express themselves individually and collectively by all means of communication. They are vital to full participation in society and are, therefore, universal human rights belonging to every man, woman, and child.
