Domestic Violence in the Hungarian Media 2002-2013: the Mediation of Suffering and the Role of the Media as a Moral Agent for Social Change
I am exploring the portrayal of domestic violence (DV) in the Hungarian media between 2002 and 2013 and the ways in which these portrayals are discursively constructed and engage their audience emotionally and morally, and also the implications of these portrayals for the power inequalities and the practices for social intervention with regard to domestic violence. With this, I aim to generate corrections and completions to three research fields, so far generally treated as separated, that is the mainly Anglo-Saxon dominated field of DV media portrayal, the previous literature on Central-Eastern European (CEE) feminist anti-violence activism that currently tends to overlook the role of the media in the development of CEE anti-violence state policies and legislation, and also the study of the democratising role of the newly introduced CEE media systems where previous literature did not treat gender as an analytical category. The period between 2002 and 2013, where the starting and closing dates are marked by two fundamental cases in the history of the Hungarian DV media portrayal seems to be capable to shake some taken-for-granted underlying assumptions of each of the above-mentioned research fields, moreover, also the assumption that these fields can be studied completely separated from one another in CEE countries.
