Gay Doesn’T Begin To Cover It: Non-Binary Sexuality In Community’S Dean Pelton”, Jessica Mae Harmon
SEWSA 2016 Intersectionality in the New Millennium: An Assessment of Culture, Power, and Society
In modern media, characters whose sexuality lies outside of binary gender and sexuality representations are few and far between. Most queer characters in mainstream American television are labeled as either gay or lesbian, and in a few rare cases bisexual. Bisexuality, while least visible among sexual minorities that fit within the prescribed LGBT acronym, is most visible outside of the gay/straight dichotomy. Meanwhile the spectrum of non-binary sexualities is largely ignored. In this essay I will examine one character that breaks this mold and forces the modern viewer to consider non-binary sexuality, Dean Craig Pelton of NBC/Yahoo’s ...

Developments In Television Viewership, Lucile E. Hecht
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects (2014-Present)
In recent years the ways in which we watch television has changed, and so has the television we watch. “Binge watching,” almost the Oxford English Dictionary’s Word of the Year in 2013, has taken a firm hold on the American television audience who now watches television not according to the broadcast schedule but on its own terms. So, too, has the practice of engaging with other audience members, be they friends, family, or strangers, while watching a show by using a secondary device – a “second screen.” These practices have been developing for some time, and as technology adapts to ...
No More Mind Games: Content Analysis Of In-Game Commentary Of The National Football League’S Concussion Problem, 2016 Wilfrid Laurier University
No More Mind Games: Content Analysis Of In-Game Commentary Of The National Football League’S Concussion Problem, Jeffrey Parker
Theses and Dissertations (Comprehensive)
American (gridiron) football played at the professional level in the National Football League (NFL) is an inherently physical spectator sport, in which players frequently engage in significant contact to the head and upper body. Until recently, the long-term health consequences associated with on the field head trauma were not fully disclosed to players or the public, potentially misrepresenting the dangers involved in gameplay. Crucial to the dissemination of this information to the public are in-game televised commentators of NFL games, regarded as the primary conduits for mediating in-game narratives to the viewing audience. Using a social constructionist theoretical lens, this ...
Gynecologists, Bureaucrats, And Stoners: The Rise Of Women In Television Comedies And Critiquing The Postfeminist Perspective, Victoria Montecillo
Scripps Senior Theses
This thesis looks to explore the rise of women in television comedy and the accompanying implications of this phenomenon. Using a historical framework, this thesis looks at the progression of representations of women in television comedies beginning in the 1950s up to today. Considering factors such as the rise of social media, as well as online television streaming services such as Hulu and Netflix as more legitimate avenues to distribute content, this thesis traces women’s place within television comedy, and argues that shows such as Parks and Recreation, The Mindy Project, and Broad City serve as examples of the ...
Film Tourism And Expectation: Using The Hallyu Wave To Model How Governments And Media Exports Influence National Image, 2016 Virginia Commonwealth University
Film Tourism And Expectation: Using The Hallyu Wave To Model How Governments And Media Exports Influence National Image, Aishat O. Bello
Undergraduate Research Posters
Film tourism encompasses the interest, investment and influence that exported media products can contribute to cultural globalization, and subsequent visitation of a nation. The Korean Wave or Hallyu wave has been studied and commended for its rapid spread and growing popularity within Asia and more recently, on a more global scale. By comparing and contrasting the methods used by the Korean government to enhance Hallyu, with several trade deals made by the US government to support Hollywood, we can see how the effects of film tourism were directed towards modifying perspectives on Korean culture. A few consequences of making trade ...
A Revolution In Favor Of Television: Wcvb-Tv And Robert Gardner's Screening Room, 2016 University of Kentucky College of Law
A Revolution In Favor Of Television: Wcvb-Tv And Robert Gardner's Screening Room, Brian L. Frye
Law Faculty Scholarly Articles
In the 1970’s, WCVB-TV in Boston produced many innovative and unusual programs. Among them was Robert Gardner’s Screening Room, one of the most delightfully unlikely programs ever aired on a network television station. Essentially, Screening Room was a talk show about independent filmmaking. Once a week, Gardner invited an independent filmmaker to show and discuss a selection of films or film clips. But Screening Room wasn’t just a showcase for independent film. It also introduced a network television audience to intellectual film critics like Rudolf Arnheim and Stanley Cavell, in a uniquely accessible and entertaining way. In ...

Cultural Influence Of Storytelling: An Examination Of The Use Of Narratives In Political Campaigns, 2015 Liberty University
Cultural Influence Of Storytelling: An Examination Of The Use Of Narratives In Political Campaigns, Charla Bansley
Television has changed political discourse. The thirty second commercial has replaced typography and rhetoric. After losing the popular vote in 5 of the last 6 presidential elections, the Republican National Committee concluded that the GOP has lost the ability to persuade. Walter Fisher's Narrative Paradigm states that meaningful communication is in the form of storytelling, which enables public discourse to observe not only differences, but commonalities. In a postmodern culture that does not believe in absolute truth, this study asked the following question: Are conservatives still using statistics and facts to communicate conservative principles? The rhetorical research conducted here ...
From Real Housewives To The Brady Bunch: Bojack Horseman Finds Its Place, 2015 Western University
From Real Housewives To The Brady Bunch: Bojack Horseman Finds Its Place, Alissa Chater
Kino: The Western Undergraduate Journal of Film Studies
Alissa Chater offers a three-part analysis of Netflix original animated television show, Bojack Horseman. In her analysis Chater discusses the ways in which the show is in dialogue with the sitcom genres it parodies as she compares the world of Bojack Horseman to the show-within-a-show, Horsin’ Around, the sitcom the titular character starred in some twenty years previous. Chater explores the ways in which editing, narrative, camera movement, and other elements display the relationship between the two shows that is an essential part of the title character. Chater offers an insightful application of cinematic analysis to the medium of animated ...

2015 AHS Capstone Projects
I set out to connect three subjects with this project: my AHS concentration in media studies, science fiction and fantasy media, and education. The intersection of these topics is the result of my project: a curriculum for a media studies course analyzing common themes and structures used in the representation of fictional worlds and their connections to modern and historical cultures and societies. The media I explored and class discussion prompts I created raise a variety of questions and will spur conversation on philosophy, ethics, religion, race, sexuality, and the foundation of them all, identity. This project has provided a ...
God And Gadgets: Following Jesus In A Technological Age, 2015 University of Dayton
God And Gadgets: Following Jesus In A Technological Age, Brad Kallenberg
Brad J. Kallenberg
Technologies are deeply embedded in the modern West. What would our lives be like without asphalt, glass, gasoline, electricity, window screens, or indoor plumbing? We naturally praise technology when it is useful and bemoan it when it is not. But there is much more to technology than the usefulness of this or that artifact. Unfortunately, we tend not to consider the inherently social and moral character of technology. As a result, we are prone to overlook the effects of technology on our spiritual lives. This book investigates the role technology plays in helping and hampering our Christian practice and witness.
Sonic Stereotypes: Jazz And Racial Signification In American Film And Television Soundtracks, 2015 Western University
Sonic Stereotypes: Jazz And Racial Signification In American Film And Television Soundtracks, Kyle Jackson
Nota Bene: Canadian Undergraduate Journal of Musicology
This paper examines the use of jazz in contemporary American film and television soundtracks. Through processes of cultural signification, jazz music frequently maps racialized meaning onto the narrative. Often, a “black” jazz aesthetic signifies social and sexual deviance, while a “white” jazz aesthetic signifies elegance and high-culture. Such associations reinforce racial boundaries and essentialist stereotypes by perpetuating a dichotomy in which “blackness” figures as culturally dangerous (e.g. sexually deviant, unrestrained, threatening, and low-class) and “whiteness” as elite and culturally superior (e.g. civilized, educated, and high-class). To demonstrate this, the soundtracks of Anthony Minghella’s The Talented Mr. Ripley ...

Television Representations Of Political Women: Do Representations Of Fictional Political Women Challenge Or Reinforce Social Constructions Of Gender, Jo Coghlan
Using liberal and postfeminist frameworks, this article considers how female candidates-politicians are framed in the news media within selected feminist typologies. It then transposes these typologies onto dramatic characterisations of women in elite positions of political power in America. It concludes that while women on political television are no longer ‘invisible’ they are problematically framed in ways which arguably reinforce social constructions of gender and strengthen the view that politics is a ‘man’s game’. Using liberal and postfeminist frameworks, this article considers how female candidates-politicians are framed in the news media within selected feminist typologies. It then transposes these ...
Conceptualising (Re)Worked Narratives Of The American Family: From The American Dream To American Decay In 'New' Television, 2015 Southern Cross University
Conceptualising (Re)Worked Narratives Of The American Family: From The American Dream To American Decay In 'New' Television, Jo Coghlan
There has been a renaissance in television in recent years. It has been mostly led by cable providers that took advantage of relaxed content regulations and advancements in technology. Originally scripted dramas complete with large budgets and auteur freedom posits that a post-broadcast era of television arrived. In production it is more slow burn art novellas than ‘traditional’ episodic television, with complex narratives, often lacking comforting resolutions. A critical discourse analysis of six series airing between 1997 and 2013 demonstrates that in content ‘new’ television can be identified by its counter-hegemonic discourses of American decay and its rejection of the ...
