Articles by Simon Cottle and David Nolan

Simon Cottle is professor of media and communications, deputy head of school, and director of the Mediatized Conflict Research Group in the Cardiff School of Journalism, Media and Cultural Studies (JOMEC). Simon has researched and written widely about the sociology of journalism, news production, research methodology and different mediated conflicts including: inner city riots and demonstrations; ‘race’ and minority ethnicity; environment, ‘risk society’ and climate change; terrorism and war. His latest books are Mediatized Conflict: Developments in Media and Conflict Studies (Open University Press, 2006) and Global Crisis Reporting: Journalism in the Global Age (Open University Press, 2009). He is the series editor of Global Crises and Media, a major new international series of 12-14 books commissioned by Peter Lang. Dr. David Nolan is a lecturer in media and communications at the University of Melbourne, Australia. David’s work focuses on the how the social role of media institutions and practitioners is socially defined and contested, and the implications of this for the role played by media (with a particular focus on journalism) in forms of institutional and social politics. To explore this area, he has been particularly interested in considering how the work of Michel Foucault on governmentality and bio-politics can be drawn upon in order to analyse the changing role played by journalism and news media in modern politics. His work has been published in numerous major international journals, including Journalism, Journalism Studies, Social Semiotics and Media International Australia. He is a member of the editorial board and Reviews Editor of the internationally refereed journal Communications, Politics and Culture.
