Georgia Newspaper Coverage Discovering Conventional Practices Of The 'Cherokee Question': Prelude To The Removal, 1828-1832, James Hollister Hobgood, Jr. Nov 2008

Georgia Newspaper Coverage Discovering Conventional Practices Of The 'Cherokee Question': Prelude To The Removal, 1828-1832, James Hollister Hobgood, Jr.

Communication Theses

This thesis analyzes the specific journalistic conventional practices of newspapers in Georgia as they focused on the “Cherokee Question” in 1828-1832, the critical period during which the state considered the removal of the Cherokees from Georgia. The research compares news and opinion texts in five Georgia newspapers with news and opinion texts in the newspaper launched by the Cherokee nation in 1828,the Cherokee Phoenix. While the conventional practices in the white-owned press tended to legitimize removal, the Phoenix adopted some of the same conventions in order to defend and negotiate Cherokee culture and issues.

Strangers In Their Own Land: A Cultural History Of Japanese American Internment Camps In Arkansas 1942-1945, Dori Felice Moss

Communication Theses

While considerable literature on wartime Japanese American internment exists, the vast majority of studies focus on the West Coast experience. With a high volume of literature devoted to this region, lesser known camps in Arkansas, like Rohwer (Desha County) and Jerome (Chicot and Drew County) have been largely overlooked. This study uses a cultural history approach to elucidate the Arkansas internment experience by way of local and camp press coverage. As one of the most segregated and impoverished states during the 1940s, Arkansas’ two camps were distinctly different from the nine other internment camps used for relocation. Through analysis of ...

With the increasing focus on the Muslim world in general, and Muslim women in particular, it is necessary to determine how women are portrayed. Muslim-Arab women have increasingly been on the face covers of ...

Preserving The American Community Newspaper In An Age Of New Media Convergence And Competition, Stephen Michael Wilson

Communication Theses

The intention of this project is to provide broad based and practical advice for American community newspapers. Print editions of papers have experienced stagnation and decline over the past several decades and today face an increasingly complex media environment, and as a result there is the potential for them to be rendered obsolete. Competition with technology based media, or technomedia, is the primary catalyst for this decline. Through a combination of background research and interviews with industry professionals, this project will attempt to develop tools for print newspapers to remain relevant and even profitable in the American media landscape of ...
