About this book

In this book a set of theoretical and methodological resources are presented to study the way in which protest, resistance and social movement discourses circulate through society and looks at the role of media and of communication in this process. Empirically, the focus of this book is on the UK’s anti-austerity movement. ‘The Circuit of Protest’, as developed in this volume, is comprised of an analysis of the discourses of the anti-austerity movement and their corresponding movement frames, and the self-mediation practices geared at communicating these. The mainstream media representations and the reception of the movement discourses and frames by non-activist citizens are also studied. It is concluded that studying a movement through the prism of mediation provides a nuanced assessment in terms of failures and successes of the UK’s anti-austerity movement. The book is of relevance to students and researchers of politics, social movements, as well as media and communication, but also to activists.

Reviews

“This is a very important and valuable book that that places mediation and communication processes at the heart of the social, cultural and political phenomena associated to protest, collective action and social change. By proposing the ‘Circuit of Protest’ as an analytical framework for the study of social movements, Cammaerts provides an essential foundation for the study of protest and contentious politics in a range of world sites.  The Circulation of Anti-Austerity Protest ought to be essential reading for scholars researching struggles, social movements and mobilisations across media and communication studies and social movement studies.” (Maria Rovisco, University of Leicester, UK)
