Abstract:

Social drama's ambiguous role of in conflict resolution makes it fascinating to study, particularly for societies going through unsettled times.
This article interrogates the dynamic tension between the informative (professional) and performative (populist) modes of media through furthering the concept of “mediated social drama.” This concept has been used to study a variety of social happenings, resulting in a conceptual mist that demands clarification. The article first summarizes the definition and the key composing elements of a mediated social drama. It then outlines a typology of social dramas, including “moral outrage/moral tale” and “social injustice/political showdown” discusses their relationship to a neighboring concept of “social problem”. Further, it discusses the problems and pitfalls when we apply the social drama concept in analyzing social conflicts (e.g. contentious crime dramas) in a society going through rapid changes, using China as a case. It draws particular attention to the likelihood of “populist social dramas,” in which news media compromise its informational function and are beholden to explicit performance, often as a result of capitulating to public opinion. It also discusses the implications of such populist social drama for redress institutions of a society.
