Abstract [en]

This chapter examines the roles of images in the transnational discourses of news, focusing on the ways the Mohammed cartoons were distributed and displayed during the period of the controversy surrounding these specific images. A central question is what happens when different image cultures with contrasting traditions and beliefs come into conflict with discourses of journalism, both within specific countries and transnationally. The chapter examines how the controversy over the cartoons played through different visual genres within journalism - as news, as commentary and as art. Also important to the controversy is understanding how the idea of the image - even among those who have never seen the image itself - can set in motion a chain of events with global consequences.
