Edited By Mikkel Fugl Eskjær, Stig Hjarvard and Mette Mortensen
The first part of the book, Transnational Networks, addresses the opportunities and challenges posed by transnational media to actors seeking to engage in and manage conflicts through new media platforms. The second part, Mobilising the Personal: Crossing Public and Private Boundaries, concerns the ways in which media framings of conflicts often revolve around personal aspects of public figures. The third part, Military, War, and Media, engages with a classic theme of media studies – the power relationship between media, state, and military – but in light of the mediatized condition of modern warfare, in which the media have become an integrated part of military strategies.
The book develops new theoretical arguments and a series of empirical studies that are essential reading for students and scholars interested in the complex roles of media in contemporary conflicts.
Advance Praise For The Dynamics of Mediatized Conflicts
ADVANCE PRAISE FOR
The Dynamics of Mediatized Conflicts
“This exciting new volume shows how conflicts of all types are today mediatized—narrated, constructed, and modified through the media. The chapters enrich and develop our understanding of conflict, going beyond conventional definitions that focus on armed or violent struggles to offer a wealth of cases, ranging from environmental campaigns to political scandals, debates over immigration and the Eurocrisis. It is an indispensible resource for anybody wishing to understand the dynamic and rapidly changing nature of conflict in an age of mediatization.”
—Professor Karin Wahl-Jorgensen, Cardiff University
“This book is an important addition to mediatization research. It offers a new analytical lens on media in conflicts. The book covers an impressive range of contemporary tensions and conflicts— which scholars, students, and citizens in general have to relate to.”
—Professor Knut Lundby, Oslo University
