Framing Violence: Conflicting Images, Identities, and Discourses
Framing Violence: Conflicting Images, Identities, and Discourses explores many of the questions surrounding challenges in framing the rising violence across the globe and in its emerging, new forms. The chapters in this volume provide multidisciplinary case studies and theoretical debates, with violence being discussed not only in its political form, but also in its domestic, financial, and artistic forms. This collection will provide a venue for discussions on the diverse issues surrounding the theme of violence and conflict from international and interdisciplinary perspectives, and divided into three parts, the first of which focuses on how the culture industry frames violence and violent actors. The second part investigates how violence is framed in legal structures and mediascapes. Finally, the third part of the book discusses the new conceptualisations in violence studies and covers chapters analysing artistic expressions of violence.
