Summary
"Recognition theory is now an influential approach to the study of identity, social conflict, multiculturalism, distribution, democracy and justice. By aligning the literature on Axel Honneth's theory with that of political communication, this study examines a neglected, but significant topic, namely the interfaces between struggles for recognition and the media. Rousiley Maia, in collaboration with a number of experts, uses empirical research to construct a sophisticated debate on the main controversies in Honneth's work - the morality of recognition, ideological forms of recognition, 'feelings of injustice', problems of claim justification, the notions of non-recognition, misrecognition, and moral evolution. This collection presents a set of intriguing case studies addressing mass communication representations, practices within networked digital media and social change in the media arena. These cases focus on the struggles for recognition of slum-dwelling adolescents, leprosy patients, women exposed to child labor exploitation, deaf individuals, LGBTQs, black women and people with disabilities"--
