Ben O'Loughlin is one of the founding editors of this new journal, launched in the Spring of 2008. Media, War and Conflict (Sage) will map the shifting arena of war, conflict and terrorism in an intensively and extensively mediated age. It will explore cultural, political and technological transformations in media-military relations, journalistic practices, and new media, and their impact on policy, publics, and outcomes of warfare. In addition to Ben (Reviews Editor), the editorial team consists of Andrew Hoskins, University of Warwick, UK, Barry Richards, Bournemouth University, UK and Philip Seib, Marquette University, USA.
It is the first journal to be dedicated to this field. It will publish substantial research articles, shorter pieces, book reviews, letters and commentary, and will include an images section devoted to visual aspects of war and conflict. The journal will bridge communications, political science, sociology, history, and other disciplines. It solicits submissions not just from academics but also professionals in journalism, the military and other areas related to this subject matter. The editors are looking for innovative, readable work that raises new issues as well as articles that examine new facets of traditional topics.
