What violent conflict tells us about media and place-making (and vice versa): Ethnographic observations from a revolutionary uprising

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review

Violent conflict highlights the significance of place to media and invites for an understanding of media as place-making. Through ethnographic work with information activists and journalists in revolutionary Egypt, Grønlykke Mollerup argues for the importance of understanding media as vitally emplaced in the phenomenological world in the same way violence is. She unfolds this argument by showing how both media and violence are co-constitutive of places and crucially entangled in the movement of people, rocks, snipers’ bullets and more.
