(~Scholarly) Publications Referencing the McCann Case

Post by Lance De Boils on 05.01.14 1:21

I have come across several references to the case in various academic [or pseudo-academic] papers and thought I'd start a topic with links to a few in case anyone else is interested in reading them.
I'd also be interested in any others people have come across.

For starters;
Some of these are links to just abstracts, some to the full article.  From some of the abstract pages, you can download the full article for free, others you would need to pay.

Abstract

The public right to know is of particular significance when considering the reporting of crime and criminal justice. The internet has demonstrated strong influences upon crime reporting in mainstream media, including the range of material it provides to audiences. In addition, the internet has exposed journalists to new legal and ethical ramifications that accompany reportage on an international scale and, while it may be 'giving the people what they want', it has also exacerbated the controversy surrounding the perennial question of how much the public has a right to know. Research suggests that giving online readers what they want in the context of crime reporting includes the transition to shorter, more concise stories at first point of access, with further background and detail available through links to multi-media facilities. Often these offer far more graphic detail and specificity than is available in mainstream media, bringing the audience closer to the scene of the crime and the people involved. This is reopening the argument of the right to know versus the desire for privacy. These developments raise questions about the level of gatekeeping that is applied to internet coverage of crime. Analysis of media reporting on the disappearance in May 2007 of British toddler Madeleine McCann has shown how online access has raised an increasing number of ethical and legal issues relevant to the question of whether giving audiences what they want can conflict with what the public have a right to know. This article examines how the internet has influenced crime reporting and gatekeeping online.

Thanks, Olympicana_Reloaded.

Wish I could get a full copy of the second one you posted, in particular.
Looks interesting.

There are a couple of recommended reads at the bottom of the Wiki page, one of which another member has already stated but I don't think anyone's mentioned this one so far:

Odd spelling of Media, don't you think? I did a double-take when I first read that! titter

They actually mean Medea who killed her two children when Jason married Nausica? Beautiful opera by Cherubini.
One of the Greek myths.

It's not at all a good parallel imo.

What I'm really interested in is your opinion on this theory and whether you think Medea can be compared to KM.

For myself I think the basic premise is wrong.

Tigger, this is another academic paper which is cited on Wiki under the Madeleine McCann case and it did not appear to have already been listed for Lance de Boils so that was why I added it.

As with any academic paper people will be free to judge it for better or worse, but imo, along with the rest, it is worth a look if only because it will spark one or two areas of academic debate. How much importance or credibility people give it is up to them.

It summarises in its abstract its premise that the Medea frame will reflect society's concerns about mothers who step outside what is considered acceptable maternal behaviour'. Obviously these are massive general terms to use. Since this seems to be an academic discussion essay of a paper rather than a scientific study as such it asks more questions than it defines. For example, 'society', 'the media' 'a bad mother'. Can there ever be just one 'societal' definition of what a 'bad mother' is? 

You ask whether I think KM can be compared to Medea? No is my answer, because I certainly don't know whether or not she killed her daughter any more than anyone else does and unless she is ever found guilty by a court then nobody can make that analogy. Secondly, and crucially, imo the whole purpose of the article is this: to explore how the press reinforce / reflect society's concerns about mothers who step outside what is considered acceptable maternal behaviour'. I recall that on one occasion even she herself made the observation that because she did not appear maternal, the press had, she believed presented her in a negative way.

A final thought is that imo, the particular case of the Mcs is not actually the best to consider against this particular academic paper the same press has actually been very inconsistent, at various times criticising them and then presenting them as victims themselves. No, as I said, imo it is worth a read for the wider topics raised though.
