We live in increasingly conflictual times. We also live in increasingly mediatized times. Mediatized Conflict explores the powered dynamics, contested representations and consequential impacts of media conflict reporting in the contemporary era. It examines how the media today do not simply `reportż or `representż diverse situations of conflict, but actively `enactż and `performż them. This important book brings together the latest research findings and theoretical discussions to develop an encompassing, multidimensional and sophisticated understanding of the social complexities, political dynamics and cultural forms of mediatized conflicts in the world today. Case-studies discussed include: anti-war protests, `dissent eventsż and anti-globalization demonstrations; moral panics and mediatized public crises centring on issues of `raceż and racism; war journalism and peace journalism; risk society and the environment; the politics of outrage and terror spectacle post 9/11; identity politics and the politics of recognition and reconciliation; and humanitarian action and media interventions in traumatized societies. Written in an accessible style by an experienced researcher and authority on mediatized conflicts, this book is essential reading for all those interested in understanding how and why and with what impacts media report on diverse conflicts in the world today.
