    Reshaping Social Theory From Complexity and Ecological Perspectives.John Smith & Chris Jenks - 2013 - Thesis Eleven 114 (1):61-75.
    This article argues that Durkheim’s founding insight – uniquely social phenomena – presents us with both a foundation for the discipline of sociology and the risk that the discipline will become isolated. This, we argue, has happened. Our contention is that the emergent social phenomena need to be understood in relation to, but not reduced to, their biological and psychological substrates. Similarly, there are a number of other characteristics, notably of self-organization, which are distinguishing properties of social phenomena but also (...)

    A Walk on the Wild Side: Urban Ethnography Meets the Fl'neur.Chris Jenks & Tiago Neves - 2000 - Cultural Values 4 (1):1-17.
    This paper focuses on the concept of the flâneur, deriving largely from the works of Baudelaire and Walter Benjamin, and attempts to reveal its contemporary relevance for sociological practice. The flâneur is treated as an instructive metaphor for the sociologist's relationship with modernity and urban life, and therefore as providing insight into the social, historical and theoretical contexts for the analysis of the world today. More than this, the idea of the flâneur is treated as highly instructive of research strategies (...)

    Fabricating the American Dream in US Media Portrayals of Syrian Refugees: A Discourse Analytical Study.Christopher J. Jenks & Aditi Bhatia - 2018 - Discourse and Communication 12 (3):221-239.
    The months preceding and following the inauguration of Donald Trump as the 45th President of the United States have incited furious debate about the authenticity of media discourse in the shaping of reality, including in particular the reporting of refugees from predominantly Muslim regions and their resettlement in Western nations. Much of this debate is rooted in how opposing discourse clans, such as liberal and conservative ideologies, construct a narrative of nationhood around contested views of refugees. Examining mainstream and alternative (...)

    Mock News: On the Discourse of Mocking in U.S. Televised Political Discussions.Christopher Jenks - 2022 - Discourse and Communication 16 (1):58-75.
    American televised political shows are under tremendous pressure to succeed within an economic model that requires maximizing viewership. In response to this growing financial pressure, political shows invite contentious guests to discuss current events and issues. Such discussions are often confrontational, making a mockery of the responsibility the news industry has in disseminating information in an impartial and insightful way. Although outrage is a common discourse feature of televised political shows, little is known about what this language looks like and (...)
