Abstract

Based on the theoretical framework of propaganda analysis and visual rhetoric, this working paper examines 1,021 images published in 11 issues of ISIS’s online magazine, Dabiq. Given the growing appeal of ISIS among Westerners, this study content analyzes the images for propaganda frames and themes in Dabiq. Additionally, visual rhetoric analysis of symbolizations in these images is conducted to further interpret their meaning and ideology.
