Résumé
"In Becoming the Story, Lindsay Palmer uses cultural and political economic analysis to examine the labor of the war correspondent. Focusing on the first decade of the 21st century, Palmer looks at how this labor is entangled within digitization processes, economic crises, and the political logic of the so-called "war on terror." She uses an institutional history of conflict correspondence to frame five case studies that examine a different instance in which a print or television correspondent slipped into the frame and received intense public scrutiny because of an incident associated with the labor of war reporting. Deeply attuned to historical questions, she shows how conflict reporting changed from the beginning of the Afghanistan conflict and Daniel Pearl's kidnapping in 2002 to the Marie Colvin's death in Syria in 2012"-- (ed.)
