Abstract / Description

This chapter is mainly concerned with the problem of how to conceptualise the entanglement of emotion and media in the 2011 riots in England. It examines the ways in which emotions and media technologies have figured in attempts to explain the motivation and momentum of the riots: in mainstream media, accounts provided by rioters and some academic analyses. It reflects on the advantages of deploying ‘affect’ and ‘assemblage’ in analysis of relations between feeling, technology and acting in the riots.
