The journal Media, War & Conflict has published a new special issue on Media and Terrorism in France, edited by Katharina Niemeyer and Staffan Ericson. Following the Paris attacks of 2015, journalists as well as ordinary citizens in France have used different media to make sense of the events. The special issue offers a range of qualitative and quantitative studies, ranging from studies of street artists’ responses to the attacks to how big data can help us interpret such events, and that consider the impact of the attacks on French national identity as well as how international media reported the events.
