Synopsis

A social tragedy is a collective representation of injustice. Baker demonstrates how social tragedies facilitate moral action and discusses a series of contemporary case studies - the death of Princess Diana, Zinedine Zidane's 2006 World Cup scandal, KONY 2012 - to examine their social and political effects.

Stephanie Alice Baker is a Researcher in Sociology at Goldsmiths, University of London, UK.
