about

There can be no doubt about the high relevance of public media for the image we have of religion in general and certain religions in particular. Yet, it seems that the topic has long been neglected in academic research and discourse. This volume brings together multi-disciplinary perspectives, presented by internationally reputed experts. They offer illuminating analyses on the various interrelations between media and religions in the fields of human rights, anti-Islamism and anti-Semitism, on religions’ potential to foster peace and to contribute to media ethics and media education in pluralistic societies. The book also provides helpful orientation and concrete suggestions for journalistic and educational practice, academic research, political and social involvement.
Manfred L. Pirner, born 1959, Chair Professor of Religious Education at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany. Johannes Lähnemann, born 1941, Chair Professor Emeritus of Religious Education at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany; Chairman of the Peace Education Standing Commission (PESC) of Religions for Peace (RfP)
