I have a new article out.
It's titled 'UK News Media discourses of Surveillance', and is published in volume 52, issue 4 of Sociological Quarterly. Link here - if the journal paywall is insurmountable, then contact me and we'll see what we can do.
This article examines the findings of a discursive analysis of UK
newspapers to determine how practices of surveillance are represented.
Drawing upon Deleuze and Guattari, the article argues for the importance
of examining the linguistic and enunciative components of surveillant
assemblages. The article shows how representations of surveillance
practices in the UK media are split between two evaluative schemas. One
is a discourse of appropriate surveillance, which draws upon discourses
of crime prevention, counterterrorism, and national security. The second
is a discourse of inappropriate surveillance that draws upon discourses
of privacy, Big Brother, and personal liberty.
It's part of a special section of the journal on Surveillance as Cultural Practice. Very happy to be a part of that.
