about

Reporting the Palestinian-Israeli Conflictexamines the portrayal of the Palestinian-Israeli 'conflict' by looking at the language used in its reporting and how this can, in turn, influence public opinion. The book explores how language use helps frame an event to elicit a particular interpretation from the reader and how this can be manipulated to introduce bias. Sirhan begins the book by examining the history of the 'conflict', and the many persistent myths that surround it. She analyses how four events in the 'conflict' (two in which the Palestinians are victims and two in which the Israelis are victims) are reported in five British newspapers:The Daily Mail,The Guardian,The Independent,The TelegraphandThe Times. By looking at these events across a range of newspapers, the book investigates differences in the way that the media reports each side, before exploring what factors motivate these differences-including issues of bias, censorship, lobbying and propaganda.

Nadia R. Sirhan is a linguist and a freelance Arabic translator. She earned a PhD in Arabic linguistics from SOAS, University of London, UK. Her previous works includeFolk Stories and Personal Narratives in Palestinian Spoken ArabicandMastering Arabic Vocabulary.
