War Culture and the Contest of Images analyzes the relationships among contemporary war, documentary practices, and democratic ideals.

Simultaneously, she explores the merging of photojournalism and artistic practices, the effects of visual framing, and the construction of both sanctioned and counter-hegemonic narratives in a global contest of imag.
