WAR ISN'T HELL, IT'S ENTERTAINMENT: ESSAYS ON VISUAL MEDIA AND THE REPRESENTATION OF CONFLICT

Anne Gjelsvik, Bo Kampmann Walther, Debra White-Stanley, Erika Doss, Fabian Virchow, Helga Tawil-Souri, Jenny Thompson, Lawrence H. Suid, Marcus Power, Matthew Thomas Payne, Mette Mortensen, Rikke Schubart, Sue Collins, Tanja Thomas, Yvonne Tasker



 

Real war is a cruel theater of death, yet it is also an exciting narrative exploited for national, political and commercial purposes and turned into numerous films, television shows, computer games, news stories and reenactment plays. These essays examine the relationship between war, visual media and entertainment from a number of academic perspectives. Key topics include how war is used as an imaginary site to stage dramas; how boundaries between war, media, and entertainment dissolve as new media alters the formal qualities of representation; how entertainment is used to engage audiences; and what effect products of war and entertainment have on consumers of popular culture.
