Screening Protest

televisual narratives of dissent across time, space and genre

Project

Duration: 2015 – 2018

Description

The problem of representation at the heart of contemporary societies is double-edged, with both political elites and professional journalists challenged by rebellion in politics, revolution in communication technology and blurred borders. The Screening Protest project brings together political science and media studies perspectives to explore this problem through three studies, comparing mediations of political dissent across time, space and narrative genre.
