A Struggle to Contextualize Photographic Images: American Print Media and the "Burning Monk."
Skow, Lisa M.; Dionisopoulos, George N.
Communication Quarterly, v45 n4 p393-409 Fall 1997
Contributes to scholarship on the role of discursive rhetoric for providing a context for visual messages. Analyzes how the American print media, in the summer of 1963, contextualized M. Browne's photographs of a Vietnamese Buddhist monk's self-immolation in two competing frames of either religious oppression or a war for freedom against the communists. (SR)
