“Media coverage and representations have too often been discriminatory, exclusive, and biased, with many important voices left unheard. The upcoming media seminar attempts to address these issues through ethical and unbiased reporting.
” It also aims to improve the understanding of Muslims and Islam through unbiased media reporting, connecting with Muslims and religious representatives as well as diversifying the medias’ respective views and portrayals. Participating Muslim students will also have the opportunity to get involved in the practical aspect of media.
“A panel session will also take place during the seminar where participants will interact and ask media-related questions from the guest speakers,” he added.
