Beschreibung

Revision with unchanged content. As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, the 9/11 terrorist attack and the U.S.-led war on terrorism have been given extensive coverage world­wide. How have the media visually reported these violent events? This work focuses on the visual reporting of 9/11 and the war in Afghanistan. A parti­cular focus is set on comparing the visual coverage in English- and Arabic-language transnational newspapers and on investigating how news practi­tioners perceive and justify the selection of graphic photographs related to war and terrorism. The results should help to answer the questions: - Did the English- and Arabic-speaking audiences see different photographs of these violent events? Did news practitioners visually report the news from politically and culturally different perspectives? All results can also have direct impli­cations: Is photojournalism considered journalism? Are news selection and use of available photographs key factors in visual framing of news events? The book is addressed to researchers in visual and political com­munication. It is also directed towards professionals in the photojournalism field, like photojournalists, photo editors, and managing editors.
