Queering The Ear: Podcast Aesthetics And The Embodied Archive In S-Town, 2022 Macalester College
Queering The Ear: Podcast Aesthetics And The Embodied Archive In S-Town, Kira Schukar
English Honors Projects
Despite podcasts’ rising popularity over the last twenty years, literary scholars are only beginning to focus on their affective potential as multimedia texts. In this thesis, I argue that even mainstream podcasts are productively intertwined with queer theories and aesthetics of belonging. Using the 2017 podcast S-Town as my case study, I examine the aural aesthetics of queer failure, temporality, archives, embodiment, and desire as key elements in this complex medium. Putting these theories and aesthetics into practice, I describe my process of research-creation and present a podcast I made about my road trip to Woodstock, Alabama, S-Town’s place ...
Facing The Fire - Challenges And Triumphs Of Western Firefighters In A Changing Climate, 2022 University of Montana
Facing The Fire - Challenges And Triumphs Of Western Firefighters In A Changing Climate, Mak Sisson
Graduate Student Theses, Dissertations, & Professional Papers
The American West sits at a dangerous position in the age of climate change. Wildfires burn hotter, longer, and cover more area than ever measured. Decreased snowpack, early spring run-off, a glut of built-up timber in parks and public lands, and longer droughts all build upon one another, and it just takes one spark to start a raging wildfire that devastates a community. As such, a firefighting force is needed to deal with this changing landscape.
However, that force is dwindling, especially at the federal level. A reported 20% of wildland firefighting positions are vacant, and the Bureau of Land ...

تأثير وسائل الإعلام الجديد على المجال العام والتسويق السياسي, عبد ربه عبدالقادر العنزي استاذ مساعد
Journal of Al-Azhar University – Gaza (Humanities)
يسعى البحث إلى الإحاطة بدينامية الفعل السياسي الذي تقوم بإحداثه وسائل الإعلام الجديد، وتأثيرها المتسارع والفعال الذي عززت به المجال السياسي العام من خلال استعادة الفكرة الكلاسيكية التي تجسد تمثيل الحكومة الديمقراطية لإرادة الشعب عبر الدفع بوسائل الإعلام الجديد والتفاعلية التي تعين الجمهور في العملية الديمقراطية التداولية والتشاركية، وتكريسها لخطاب يتضمن طائفة واسعة من القضايا المتعلقة بالصالح العام. وكونها ركيزة مستحدثة وجادة في التحليل النقدي لأعمال الحكومات جراء تقنيتها الفاعلة، وسرعة انتشارها، وتكلفتها الرخيصة، وعدم هرميتها، وتوافرها لدى أكثر الطبقات والفئات الاجتماعية، وتصاعد استخدامها بشكل غير تقليدي في تعزيز المشاركة السياسية والتأثير في تصورات وسلوك الناخبين. ويسعى البحث إلى ...
Sounds Of The Reich: Nazi Party Radio And Speeches, 2021 University of Missouri, St. Louis
Sounds Of The Reich: Nazi Party Radio And Speeches, Katelyn Hanners
Undergraduate Research Symposium
Radio broadcasts and speeches were key aspects of Nazi regime propaganda. From March 1927 to when the Nazi party won power in March 1933, Hitler made 455 public appearances, reaching close to 4.5 million people. Radio was the leading medium during the Great Depression and during all of WWII. Nazi propaganda focused on the effectiveness of the message, not the means through which it was relayed. Nazis liked simplistic and straightforward ideas with no underlying interpretations. Studies have shown that campaigns do not change the opinions of the masses. Rather, they confirm what the people already believe. In the ...

A Line In The Sand Album Review, 2021 University of the Pacific
A Line In The Sand Album Review, Robert N. Moore
On July 3rd, 2020, American Arson released their first full-length album. A Line In The Sand has a tight and powerful sound while still feeling raw and untamed, thanks to the help of high production standards. The lyrics somehow find a balance between bold, catchy, and beautiful. Their message mainly revolves around the current American socio-political sphere, challenging their listeners to seek compassion and unity instead of giving into apathy and ignorance.

This paper attempts to offer a critique of the music industry and modern copyright law via analysis/individual case study in order to provide suggestions for possible reform.

The View From Somewhere: A Review, 2021 University of Wollongong
The View From Somewhere: A Review, Robert S. Boynton
Lewis Raven Wallace was fired from Marketplace for questioning the mainstream media's conception of journalistic neutrality. He developed his critique in his 2019 book, The View From Somewhere: Undoing the Myth of Journalistic Objectivity, a podcast of the same name, and in several ancillary products. Wallace concludes that “objectivity is a false ideal that upholds the status quo”, and news judgement has less to do with objective criteria than with “who controls the narrative, whose narratives matter, and how the appearance of mattering is created in a society rife with entrenched inequality”.

Narrative Justice: Somebody Delivers The Answers That Police Will Not, 2020 University of Wollongong
Narrative Justice: Somebody Delivers The Answers That Police Will Not, Neroli Price
By investigating Courtney Copeland’s 2016 murder, the podcast series Somebody (2020) does the work that should be done by police. Narrated by Courtney’s mom, Shapearl Wells, the series not only decentres the official police narrative, but also opens up alternative paths towards seeking justice. Situated within the Black Lives Matter movement, calls to defund the police and questions about the usefulness of “objectivity” in journalism, Somebody attempts to put systemic violence on trial and hold those in power to account. Challenging extractive forms of journalism, Somebody moves towards a model of shared authority between producers and their sources ...
Mysteries Solved And Unsolved In The Search For The Missing Cryptoqueen, 2020 University of Wollongong
Mysteries Solved And Unsolved In The Search For The Missing Cryptoqueen, Claudia Calhoun
The Missing Cryptoqueen, produced for BBC Sounds by Jamie Bartlett and Georgia Catt, investigates the cryptocurrency scam fronted by Dr. Ruja Ignatova, self-described “cryptoqueen.” The series benefits from the engrossing complexity of a sprawling conspiracy: The podcasters travel across continents to find both the scammers and their victims, making important stops in the U.K., Germany, Bulgaria, the Netherlands, and Uganda. The series also benefits from its own breathless narration, which keeps listeners in the present-tense of the storytelling. This was an especially compelling series for the large audience who listened as the weekly episodes were released, as the series ...

Tools Of Rescue: A Review Of Silencio Para Rescatar: Documental Sonoro, Sonia Robles
In this audio documentary, Mexican cultural promoter and sound artist Abraham Chavelas recounts rescue activities in which he took part after a 7.1 magnitude earthquake rattled Mexico on 19 September 2017. Answering a call for help, Chavelas was assigned to a collapsed factory where an unknown number of undocumented Asian and Central American women working as seamstresses were trapped under the rubble. For two days, he aided rescue efforts by using a high-tech microphone to help determine whether or not there was life under piles of concrete, glass and debris. Chavelas used the audio he gathered before the Mexican ...
