Summary

Summary

This work delves into the act of reporting on different cultures as a means of exploring our own. The way culture is presented to the media highlights various international and intercultural dynamics, as well as the complexity involved in reporting from a cultural standpoint.

Reporting Cultures in 60 Minutes is a study covering the journalistic practice of reporting culture by examining "Tango Finlandia," a broadcast report on Finnish culture produced by the American television news magazine 60 Minutes . It covers the journalistic practice of reporting culture broadly by looking specifically at Finns and Americans reporting about their respective homelands and about the other#65533;s culture and social interactions.

Unique in its content and approach, this volume:

Demonstrates how reports are constructed as deeply cultural forms, couched in points of view derived from one#65533;s discursive habits and their meanings. Analyzes reporting done in professional practice/journalism as well as in common social routine. Offers a way through the process that can move reporting on culture from a self-reflective mirror to opening a window onto another cultural world.

Scholars and students in communication, intercultural/international studies, and related areas will find much to consider in this work
