Organised by BagNews Salon, an online platform "dedicated to understanding how the visual media frames the key social and political events of the day," the discussion will focus on the news images produced and distributed during the Egyptian uprising against former president Hosni Mubarak.
The live discussion will take place on Sunday 20 March from 10am (Pacific Standard Time) or 5pm in London, and will be broadcast live on the Open-I network. Participants will include lecturer and researcher David Campbell, as well as photographers David Degner and Laura El-Tantawy.
They will be joined by Middle East Report's photo editor Michelle Woodward, BagNews' publisher Michael Shaw, and Ida Benedetto, also of BagNews. Professors Paul Lowe of the London College of Communications and Loret Steinberg of R.I.T. will complete the panel with moderator Nathan Stormer of the University of Maine.
