Abstract: In this paper, we will examine the extent to which white religious conservatives are able to balance certain Christian beliefs regarding human equality with other beliefs concerning blacks' violation of norms concerning the Protestant ethic. We will do so by, first, explaining an experiment that we use to isolate attitudes toward blacks from conservative values. We then present our results. In the final section, we discuss our findings and their implications for Republican attempts to recruit black candidates who can appeal to black voters without turning off support from the conservative Christian base.

Abstract: The Turkish photojournalist Nilufer Demir’s photograph of the drowned refugee child Alan Kurdi attained worldwide recognition as a media spectacle, initially prompting humanitarian responses and political action, but later morphing into online memes and inciting public backlash as “war porn.” I argue here that the ethical motivations of photojournalism and memes are oppositional with regard to their representations of embodied vulnerability. While photojournalistic depictions of vulnerable bodies are motivated by an ethics of care intended to generate empathy and progressive social change, memes disrupt those affective connotations through processes of mimicry and replication. By means of a comparative semiological analysis, this paper examines the way the sign system of Demir’s photograph was mutated into a meme, radically changing the ethical connotations of the former. The differing ethical affordances of news photos versus memes, and their relationship, may help to explain the reversal of the cosmopolitan humanitarianism initially sparked by the Alan Kurdi photograph and tell us more about the ethical frictions and contrapositions at work in the contemporary media environment.

Abstract: This paper examines the death of three year-old Alan Kurdi in shaping public understanding of the migration crisis within a European context. The images of his dead body of went viral on social media (most notably on Twitter and Facebook) and were subsequently prominently published and circulated in the international news media, making his death both hyper visible as well as bringing the migration crisis to wider attention. The paper draws on empirical work using social media data used to make sense of the groundswell of responses at the time of his death and brings this in dialogue with research carried out on the one-year anniversary of his death. Focus groups, in-depth interviews and a multi platform survey were conducted a year later to better understand how social media users responded to this child turned icon. Ultimately, the paper seeks to better understand what kind of potentially distorting visibility this death represents.
