Title: Seuchen, Ängste und Diskurse [Epidemics, Fears and Discourses. Mass Communication as Discursive Role Play]
Subtitle: Massenkommunikation als diskursives Rollenspiel
Written By: Bettina Radeiski

Series Title: Sprache und Wissen 5
Description:

The subject of this book is the media coverage of avian flu (bird flu) in 2006. A
large part of media coverage consists of reflection on the media contributions
and their potential power, where one aspect stands out in particular: the effect of
fear. This is accomplished by means of the two normative poles ‑ playing down
the issue and scaremongering. The primary aim of the book is to explain all
phenomena, and especially those that are contradictory at first glance. Here,
referring to Foucault’s discourse concept, the key category of the discursive role
is developed.
