Suin Roberts discussed her forthcoming book, Language of Migration: Self- and Other-Representation of Korean Migrants in Germany, particularly how immigrants are represented positively or negatively in the media based on sociopolitical issues of the time. She also addressed how migrants in Germany have been represented in the media and compared it to representations of immigrants in the United States.
