CFP: Turkey Media and Violence

Deadline: April 20, 2017

Wars, conflicts, terrorist events, humanitarian crises and social tensions continue to determine the agenda of Turkey and the world. The reflection of acts of violence dominating the literature in media and communication studies and the social influence of violence in the media still maintain their significance.Ranging from individual crimes to regional wars, the phenomenon of violence is encountered by various events, and the media offers the opportunity to produce violence in new forms.
