At Dart Centre Europe's offices in London, a lunchtime round-table discussion about Somalia's media image and its bearing on the country and Somali diaspora
Dart Centre Europe is running a number of practical discussions, meeting informally over lunch, for journalists and filmmakers interested in fresh approaches to reporting on violence and trauma.
Our third event in the series, 'Somalia: beyond violence', will bring together journalists, filmmakers and others with experience of reporting on Somalia.
Anarchy, armed conflict and kidnapping have dominated coverage of Somalia over the last two decades. Now that foreign journalists' access to Somalia has started to improve, new reporting opportunities have opened up. But does coverage reflect the reality of Somali lives and what are we missing from dispatches back to the UK? What bearing does Somalia's violent image have for the country and its diaspora?
During our discussion we will also explore regional differences, what local media offers and the personal risks for Somali journalists. This seminar will provide an opportunity for participants to bring their own questions and experiences to the table, allowing us to broaden our view beyond typical media narratives.
The practice-based conversation will help to inform the Dart Centre's approach to supporting journalists and media workers who cover trauma and violence.

At the Frontline Club in London, a seminar organised by the Media School at Bournemouth University, exploring what value new academic research may have for the practice of journalism.
Gavin Rees, Director of the Dart Centre Europe, and Barry Richards, Professor of Public Communication in the Media School at Bournemouth University, will talk about the implications for training of their research on emotional literacy in journalism. Stephen Jukes, Dean of the Media School and former Head of Global News at Reuters, will lead a discussion on the place of objectivity in emotionally-aware journalism, in the age of social media. Stuart Allan, Bournemouth’s Professor of Journalism, Dr. Caitlin Patrick and Dr. Einar Thorsen will analyse some recent examples of news imagery in relation to trauma, particularly coverage of the recent capture and death of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya.
The discussion will be of interest to all those concerned with the management of difficult emotions in the production of news, and the emotional impact of news content on audiences.
This is the first in a series of informal seminars organised by the Media School of Bournemouth University, where researchers will present some of their work and invite discussion of its implications for the practice of journalists and for other stakeholders in some major areas of policy and practice.
