Barbie Zelizer, Ph.D., the Raymond Williams Professor of Communication and Past President of the International Communication Association (ICA), delivered the keynote address during the ICA annual conference in Singapore last month. The title of her keynote was "Journalism in the Service of Communication."
Abstract: How do news images work simultaneously as vehicles of both information relay and collective memory? This talk will address the formulaic ways in which images, via their incorporation as news, function both to provide the public with information and to shape the public’s collective memory. The talk will argue that frequently collective memory is addressed at the expense of information relay, raising questions as to whether or not images work as well as they might in giving the public what it needs to see about news events, issues and problems.
