BOOK ANNOUNCEMENT: “Scandalogy: An Interdisciplinary Field” (Haller, Michael & Kraus, 2018) (Halem Publishing House, 2018)

Scandals are an essential part of the media agenda: corruption affairs, doping cases, and environmental pollution are treated as scandals. But such scandals are not only meaningful in the context of media routines. The whole process of scandalization constitutes social phenomena which beg our critical attention from an academic perspective.

The collected volume Scandalogy: An Interdisciplinary Field presents contributions from international researchers that deal with scandals from a range of academic perspectives. The book combines empirical research and theoretical studies on scandals that were presented at the 1st International Conference in Scandalogy at the University of Bamberg in 2016. The book aims at researchers, particularly in political science, communication and media studies. The variety of contributions range from literary studies to psychology and is therefore suitable for all scholars working on scandals and society and warrants proclaiming “Scandalogy” its own field of investigation.

Also, this collected volume appeals to the broader public, interested in scandalization in a modern media environment. The book offers an in-depth expert interview with Frederik Obermaier (Süddeutsche Zeitung), one of the leading journalists in the Panama Papers scandal, and an interview with Robert Entman (George Washington University) which helps to understand scandal culture in the USA in the age of President Trump.
