Hybrid Media Events: The Charlie Hebdo Attacks and the Global Circulation of Terrorist Violence

Sumiala, Johanna; Valaskivi, Katja; Tikka, Minttu; Huhtamäki, Jukka

What are hybrid media events? And how do these events shape our lives in the present digital age? This book addresses these questions by explaining how terrorist violence makes global events. The empirical analyses are based on the case of Charlie Hebdo attacks in 2015 and the global circulation of solidarities and anger connected with the attacks.
