Athina Karatzogianni is Lecturer in Media, Culture and Society at the University of Hull, UK. She is author of The Politics of Cyberconflict (2006), Power, Conflict and Resistance: Social Movements, Networks and Hierarchies with Andrew Robinson (2010), and editor of Cyber Conflict and Global Politics (2009).Review:
"Violence and War in Culture and the Media explores the roots of violence and war through the lenses of five very different disciplines (history, culture, sociology, politics and gender) with a focus on very different subjects, ranging from an original interpretation of Manet’s artwork "The Execution of Emperor Maximilian" to studies on early systems of communication in the Thirty Years War, culture and memories of violence and war, cyberwar, and rape narratives in South Africa, as well as war between Israel and Hezbollah in 2006, among other deeply researched chapters, all with a common denominator of media and communications. The result is totally unexpected and serendipitous, allowing disciplines that rarely speak to one another to inter-communicate―and learn from one another―for the very first time."- Hall Gardner, Professor and Chair, Department of International and Comparative Politics, American University of Paris
"From the postal system in the Thirty Years War to bondage imagery in fashion shoots, from hacker activists in Eastern Europe to rape narratives in South Africa, these essays offer new connections between violence and culture, between mediation and domination, between the politics of conflict and the conflicts of politics." - Graham Meikle, Senior Lecturer in Communications, Media and Culture, University of Sterling
