Media and the Ukraine Crisis: Hybrid Media Practices and Narratives of Conflict (Global Crises and the Media #21) (Paperback)
This book offers unique insights into how news media today make disasters culturally meaningful and politically important, drawing on cutting-edge theoretical work and recent examples. It looks at how globalization is affecting the meanings of disaster but also considers the continued relevance of nations and their citizens as interpretive frameworks.
