The official journal of the International Gothic Association considers the field of Gothic studies from the eighteenth century to the present day. The aim of Gothic Studies is not merely to open a forum for dialogue and cultural criticism, but to provide a specialist journal for scholars working in a field which is today taught or researched in almost all academic establishments. Gothic Studies invites contributions from scholars working within any period of the Gothic; interdisciplinary scholarship is especially welcome, as are readings in the media and beyond the written word.

The Journal of Humanitarian Affairs is an exciting, new open access journal hosted jointly by The Humanitarian Affairs Team at Save the Children UK, and Centre de Réflexion sur l’Action et les Savoirs Humanitaires MSF (Paris) and the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute at the University of Manchester. It will contribute to current thinking around humanitarian governance, policy and practice with academic rigour and political courage. The journal will challenge contributors and readers to think critically about humanitarian issues that are often approached from reductionist assumptions about what experience and evidence mean. It will cover contemporary, historical, methodological and applied subject matters and will bring together studies, debates and literature reviews. The journal will engage with these through diverse online content, including peer reviewed articles, expert interviews, policy analyses, literature reviews and ‘spotlight’ features.

Our rationale can be summed up as follows: the sector is growing and is facing severe ethical and practical challenges. The Journal of Humanitarian Affairs will provide a space for serious and inter-disciplinary academic and practitioner exchanges on pressing issues of international interest.

The journal aims to be a home and platform for leading thinkers on humanitarian affairs, a place where ideas are floated, controversies are aired and new research is published and scrutinised. Areas in which submissions will be considered include humanitarian financing, migrations and responses, the history of humanitarian aid, failed humanitarian interventions, media representations of humanitarianism, the changing landscape of humanitarianism, the response of states to foreign interventions and critical debates on concepts such as resilience or security.

Recalling the insurrectionary violence that descended upon the US Capitol on 6 January 2021, reflecting on the baser instincts left unchecked in America by an absence of common communication and a paradigmatic shift in our media apparatuses, Justin A. Joyce introduces the seventh volume of James Baldwin Review.

8 The ghosts of media past and present: spirit photography and contemporary art Ben Burbridge 1 I have no doubt that there are those within the sound of my voice who will live to see the time when photographic reproductions will be sent from country to country as quickly as telegraphic messages to-day. In conclusion, may I not ask, who shall say that the camera, adjusted by the hand that feels, and focused by the sensitive eye that sees beyond, with the aid of the intensely sensitive dry plates, shall not bring to light and view the forms of our departed

A case of delay, deny, defeat?

6 Freedom of information and the media: a case of delay, deny, defeat? Conor Ryan Introduction In 1997 Irish journalism emerged from a period dominated by violence in Northern Ireland to find a new status in exposing wrongdoing in public life. As it took on this task it was given a powerful new tool, the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act. Yet without instructions or clarity on how it was to be interpreted and used, in its first fifteen years it fell victim to inconsistencies and delays. In June 2014 the reporters, whose frustrations festered, were given fresh

For professional historians of aid and development, such joint ventures provide a unique way to find and create documents required to understand the actions and the words of as many of those involved as possible, in as many contexts as possible. The five media specialists encountered in December 2020 for

It achieved its moment of (temporary) victory in 2018 with the closing of Italian ports to NGO vessels and the halting of search and rescue operations by NGOs on the Mediterranean. The

4 The role of the economy in media coverage In previous chapters, we have argued that Ireland’s media system is characterised by norms of critical impartiality, and that these norms have survived and continue to influence media content in the information age. This chapter addresses our third broad hypothesis regarding the role of ‘exogenous factors’ outside the media itself. Recent scholarship in political science and political communications argues that exogenous factors such as the economy are responsible for important changes in media coverage (Soroka et al

5 Political lobbying, the media and influencing public opinion While the Marriage Equality campaign was gaining ground, the government continued working on issuing a Civil Partnership Bill but failed to reach its own March deadline date. In April 2008, the European Court of Justice ruled in favour of granting a same-sex partner pension entitlement on the death of their loved one. However, this would only apply to European countries where civil partnerships were legally recognised. This move and the release of some details relating to the government’s proposed
