I’m very happy to share that my book has been released.
Just got notified by Taylor and Francis that my article was included in their Social Media Research collection, which explores digital media and internet technology from various perspectives. That means it’s now openly and freely accessible online!
How great to have my piece included in this very timely special issue of the open access journal of the Media, Communication, and Cultural Studies Association. The theme is Fortress Europe: Media, Migration and Borders, and it presents a range of case studies on the media coverage of the so-called “refugee crisis” in Europe. It highlights how Europe and the violence that its borders inflict upon bodies comes to produce refugees as “other,” and explores the role of various (digital) media representations in consolidating or challenging the dominant tropes around the figures of the migrant, refugee, and asylum seeker.
