Media Witnessing and Transnational Motherhood

Distant Wars Visible

Wendy Kozol

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter analyzes the ideal of transnational motherhood in photojournalism’s coverage of the NATO bombings to address the conundrum for media witnessing between the need for publicity and the dangers of spectacle. A discussion of a photo-installation project about war trauma in Kosovo/a confronts this conundrum in media witnessing of ethnic conflict through the lens of in/visibility.
