>Call for articles about The Michael Jackson Trial
>*       How does Michael Jackson's trial, and the associated media 
>spectacle, mobilises ideas about gender, race, class, the body, queer, 
>sexuality, power, childhood/adulthood, fandom and celebrity?
>*       What does the reporting tell us about phenomena such as 'trial by 
>television', the media event, the use of chat shows or dramatic 
>reconstructions and the role of personal testimony?
>*       How is the story resonating across cultural and national borders?
>*       What are the socio-political contexts and implications of this 
>major media spectacle?
>Jenny Kitzinger and Sujata Moorti are editing a special issue of the 
>international journal 'Social Semiotics' and are inviting contributions 
>around these and related questions.
