Shaping Nation Image: Contemporary Issues in Framing Research

  • Sergei A. Samoilenko

Abstract

Framing research has emerged across a range of disciplines as an analytical framework
to unpack socially constructed schemas that give meaning to issues or events. Despite
its academic prominence, framing is an ambiguous concept due the paradigmatic
divisions of framing research. Robert Entman’s approach to advocates for a necessity
to create a singular framing paradigm that synthesizes related theories and concepts.
This paper examines issues of contemporary framing research by discussing Entman’s
approach in relation to alternative paradigms. It calls for conceptual flexibility when
framing analysis is used for systematic understanding of national image development
and contestation.
