CitationConaway, Carol B. "Framing Identity: The Press in Crown Heights." Shorenstein Center Research Paper Series 1996.R-16, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, November 1996.
AbstractHow did the press frame the antagonists and the conflict that occurred in Crown Heights during and after the disturbances? What themes and story lines were used to organize the facts in news reports? How were both the antagonists and the events made meaningful? Did the frames that were used to organize the narrative provide an accurate picture of who and what was involved in what one journalist described as “Sarajevo on the Hudson”?
