Professor Keeble will look at the numerous attempts by Western powers to assassinate Col. Khadafi over the last 40 years , and the way in which Fleet Street has both covered and marginalised Libya over this period. The talk will then raise issues about the history of overt and covert warfare, the sourcing of mainstream media reporting and the selective application of outrage in the dominant media. Richard Lance Keeble is Professor of Journalism at the University of Lincoln and Acting Head of the Lincoln School of Journalism. He has written and edited 20 books on a wide range of subjects and he is the joint editor of Ethical Space: The International Journal of Communication Ethics.
