Melissa M. Brough, “‘Fair Vanity’: The Visual Culture of Humanitarianism in the Age of Commodity Activism” in Roopali Mukherjee and Sarah Banet-Weiser (New York University Press, 2012), pp. 174-194.

In her contribution to this exciting and necessary collection, Brough explores the production and use of media in the humanitarian sector through a study of Invisible Children. Her study sketches out the field of Western Humanitarianism and its construction of donors and receivers, with consideration of both Christian and neoliberal underpinnings of the endeavour.
