First Results for the Monitoring of Linguistic Minorities in Italy Released

Tuesday, July 19 2011, between 11.00-13.00, in the Oriana room at the Department of Social research and Communication (Via Salaria 113, Rome),  a round table was held in light of the first results for the monitoring of linguistic minorities to be released in Italy, a part of the project which focuses on how minorities are stereotyped in the media. This project was born from a collaboration between the Radiotelevision Listening Center, a part of the Department of Communication and Social Research at La Sapienza, and with the support of Open Society Foundations and with the contribution of the Esperanto Radical Association and the Civil Service Project, “Diritto a Babele.”

 

The event showcased the first results extracted from the monitoring project, collected thanks to the Volunteers of the Civil Service Project, “Diritto a Babele” at the Esperanto Radical Association. The aim of the project is to draw an outline of how immigrants and minorities are represented in national territory and through its media, both radio and television, and to raise awareness among Institutions of how much influence the media has on social relationships. During the presentation, Gianni Betto, of the Listening Center, and the head of the Science of Communication Faculty, Mauro Morcellini, were present. They congratulated ERA’s volunteers, as well as the Vicepresident of Senato, Emma Bonino, Luigi Monconi, Carmelo Lamberto, Roberto Natale e Lella Mazzoli. The statistics regarding the first 10 days of monitoring during the July-December semester (2010) took in to account 40,000 news broadcasts, between 1200 news reports, 6400 radio news reports, and a number of hours of all types of information taken from in-depth radio and television broadcasts, reaching a total of 170 hours a day. You can follow the entire broadcast of the round table on Radio Radicale, and watch the Volunteers being thanked on esperanto.tv (http://www.youtube.com/embed/Hu0qvzc8al8″ )
