CFP | 1.10. | Framing war and conflict

This special issue of Media, War and Conflict is calling for papers. “Framing War & Conflict” aims to assess the strengths and weaknesses of framing as a method for analysing contemporary war coverage, and to clarify how and why the method has been refined and modified over the years.

We seek to bring together articles which exemplify and/or assess the range of ways in which framing analysis has been deployed, including more challenging or novel applications such as visual framing, online news or social media.  Possible topics might include, but are not limited to:
