Launch: The University of Penn Center for Media at Risk at Penn’s Annenberg School for Communication
Soraya Chemaly, Director of WMC Speech Project, opens the launch event of the University of Penn Center for Media at Risk with a key note speech on 'Who defines risk and why does it matter?'
"What is Media at Risk?" is a cross-disciplinary conference bringing together media practitioners, media scholars, and media assist organizations to define what "media at risk" means globally in circumstances of political intimidation and what can be done to resist it. Given the proliferating nature of creeping authoritarianism around the world, these efforts will help highlight Penn’s mission to explain more fully what political intimidation in the media – in documentary, journalism, entertainment, and the digital environment – looks like worldwide.
