This dissertation examines how urban imaginaries in international film, literature and photography feature as framings in Global Financial Crisis discourses. Drawing on methods and concepts from media and communication studies, cultural analysis, anthropology, and philosophy, it shows how such framings respond to the challenge of narrating the complex global process of financialization. The dissertation develops the concept of myth/mythology as analytical tool for the close reading of various interrelated media practices of crisis communication, examining in particular the politico-ideological implications of these practices.
