Call for Articles n° 4 – Rhetoric, Media, and the Fictitious Representation of Reality in Television and Propaganda

IDEA – Interdisciplinary Discourses, Education and Analysis launches a call for articles for its new issue dedicated to Rhetoric, Media, and the Fictitious Representation of Reality in Television and Propaganda.
The intersection of rhetoric, media, and truth has been a topic of interest for scholars and researchers for centuries. However, with the rise of television and propaganda, this relationship has become even more complex. Today, the role of propaganda and the fictitious representation of reality in shaping public opinion has become a widely debated topic, particularly in light of recent events such as the spread of misinformation and fake news.
We invite scholars from a range of disciplines, including communication studies, media studies, journalism, political science, sociology, psychology, and philosophy, to submit their research on the following topics:

• The use of rhetoric in television and propaganda. This theme seeks to explore the role of rhetorical strategies and techniques used in television and propaganda. How do messages get conveyed to audiences, and what impact do these strategies have on public perception of reality? What role does language and word choice play in shaping audience responses?

• The impact of media on public perception of reality. This theme seeks to explore how media representation shapes our understanding of reality. How does television portray social, cultural, and political issues, and what impact does this have on our beliefs and attitudes? What is the role of news media in shaping public opinion?

• The role of propaganda in shaping public opinion. This theme seeks to explore the history of propaganda and its impact on society. How has propaganda been used in the past, and what are the implications of its use today? What role does propaganda play in shaping public opinion, and what are the ethical implications of its use?

• The use of truth and fiction in media narratives. This theme seeks to explore the use of truth and fiction in media narratives. How do media narratives create meaning and influence public opinion? What are the implications of the use of fictional elements in media narratives, and how do these elements contribute to our understanding of reality?

• The ethical implications of propaganda and the fictitious representation of reality. This theme seeks to explore the ethical implications of propaganda and the use of fictitious representations of reality in media. What are the ethical implications of using propaganda to influence public opinion? What are the implications of creating fictional narratives in media, and how does this impact our understanding of reality?

• The role of media literacy in combating propaganda and fake news. This theme seeks to explore the role of media literacy in combating propaganda and fake news. How can individuals develop media literacy skills, and what are the implications of doing so? What role do educational institutions, governments, and other organizations play in promoting media literacy?

Interested authors are required to submit an abstract of the proposed work with a title (max. 300 words for the abstract), a maximum of 5 keywords, and a short biographical note (max. 250 words).
