AOSIS launch the Journal of Media and Rights
AOSIS is proud to announce the launch of the Journal of Media and Rights (JMR).
Focus and Scope
The Journal of Media and Rights (JMR) aims to provide an innovative and diverse platform for the presentation and discussion of original research linking media scholarship with rights-based scholarship. This unique linkage is explored in various sociopolitical and cultural contexts in the quest for intellectual understanding of the positive and/or negative impact that evolving media approaches have on the expression and realisation of rights. A core element of JMR is the exploration of rights (human or otherwise) via the close analysis of media texts such as films, television, radio, podcasts, and other forms of online media. In this way, JMR includes cutting-edge discussions on the semiotics, narrative and contextual meaning that can be derived by analysing media texts from a rights-based perspective and vice versa. JMR also examines rights-related concerns connected to the media industries themselves. This includes, for instance, assessing the media industries from a rights-based perspective in order to scrutinise working practices and industry structures. Read more…
JMR is therefore interdisciplinary and welcomes papers that investigate the linkages between media and rights from a variety of perspectives. These may include, but are not limited to, perspectives coming from:
- film studies
- television studies
- communication studies
- memory studies
- political science
- international relations
- human rights law
- cultural studies
The thematic scope of JMR is thus broad in so far as contributions consider a form (or multiple forms) of media within the interdisciplinary confines of the PANEL principles of rights-based approaches:
- Non-Discrimination and Equality
