Making It Pay To Be A Fan: The Political Economy Of Digital Sports Fandom And The Sports Media Industry, Andrew Mckinney
All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
This dissertation is a series of case studies and sociological examinations of the role that the sports media industry and mediated sport fandom plays in the political economy of the Internet. The Internet has structurally changed the way that sport fans access sport and accelerated the processes through which the capitalist actors in the sports media industry have been able to subsume them. The three case studies examined in this dissertation are examples of how digital media technologies have both helped fans become more active producers and consumers of sports and made the sports media industry an integral and vanguard ...

Gender And Parenting: A Content Analysis Of The American Sitcom, 2018 Concordia University, Saint Paul
Gender And Parenting: A Content Analysis Of The American Sitcom, Mollie Borer, Nicholas Alexander
Concordia Journal of Communication Research
The purpose of this study was not only to get a better understanding of what types of gender and parenting norms exist in television sitcoms, but to see if the same gender and parenting norms that were displayed in the 20th century would be displayed in a sitcom created 30 years later. This was done through a content analysis of the television sitcoms All In The Family and Modern Family. The researchers found that traditional gender norms still existed in both sitcoms, but that the gender roles and parenting norms were reversed in Modern Family.

Is This Black Enough For You? A Comparative Analysis Of African-American Families Portrayed In Black Family Television Comedies Between 1980 And 2000, Joycelyn Jonas-Fowler
Electronic Theses & Dissertations Collection for Atlanta University & Clark Atlanta University
Research shows that black people watch more television than any other race of people, and, given that television is the most influential media tool, the content of what may affect an audience’s behavior and beliefs deserves analysis. This study examines the black family, alleged pathology, strengths that are specifically associated with them, its portrayal on television, and how television is used as a tool for socialization and influence. A content analysis of the top thirty black family shows that appeared on major network television between 1980 and 2000 was conducted to determine if the family framed was portrayed realistically ...
Spectatorship And Subjectivity, 2018 Molloy College
Spectatorship And Subjectivity, E. Deidre Pribram Ph.D.
The study of spectatorship is an attempt to understand why we choose to sit in the movie theater seat or on the living-room sofa captivated by a screen. What is it that makes the experience so pleasurable, desirable, meaningful - given that viewing subjects position themselves as filmic or televisual spectators voluntarily, in very large numbers, and with frequent repetition.? What are the relationships between individual and filmic process: how are we linked to screen, narrative, character? Whq exactly is the subject seated before the screen, involved in an activity which has been described as everything from passive absorption to active ...

The Marginalization And Stereotyping Of Asians In American Film, 2018 Dominican University of California
The Marginalization And Stereotyping Of Asians In American Film, Isabel Paner
Honors Theses and Capstone Projects
Asians in Hollywood films and the industry have been subjected to unfair stereotyping and under-representation since the twentieth century and up to the present. This thesis analyzes and dissects this marginalization and stereotyping of Asians in American films through text and film analysis and critical theory. Historically, if Asians are not portrayed in a stereotypical role, then they are given no role at all, rendered invisible by Hollywood and mass audiences. Their marginalization in the film industry has damaging effects on the perception of Asians in society. This study will explain what stereotypes have endured over the course of history ...

Vlogging In Korea: From Film Student To Youtuber, 2018 Western Kentucky University
Vlogging In Korea: From Film Student To Youtuber, Kalyn Edwards
Honors College Capstone Experience/Thesis Projects
Video blogging, or vlogging, has become its own genre on YouTube in almost a “reality show” type atmosphere. This project aims to examine that world of video blogging from a personal level, not only as a film student, but also from the perspective of an aspiring businesswoman. The goals of this project are to take on the role of a vlogger, along with all its struggles, while exposing myself to a new culture in hopes of appealing to a certain demographic. It appears as though we have gone from a world relying on telegrams and postcards to becoming a society ...
The Reification Of Hegemonic Masculinity Via Heteronormativity, Sexual Objectification, And Masculine Performances In Tau Kappa Epsilon Recruitment Videos, Viki Tomanov
Butler Journal of Undergraduate Research
Fraternity members constitute a large percentage of men who hold highly influential jobs in politics, large corporations, and the like. Since fraternities are limited to men-only, it is important to examine how masculinity is both rhetorically constructed and subsequently performed. Tau Kappa Epsilon (TKE), the fraternity with the largest amount of chapters nationwide, is the focus of my analysis. Its popularity among college campuses signifies that its recruitment is successful and that, regardless of initiation into the fraternity, many men (and women) view TKE as an example of masculinity. In my analysis, I examine TKE recruitment videos from various universities ...

Breaking Down The 21st Century Newscast: Corporate Control Over The Content Of The Local Newscast, Katie Tipsword
News media are in turmoil as the public is less informed and more polarized than ever. This issue dates back to the late 1970s, and early 1980s when corporations took over news organizations and began to demand profits out of them. This changed news from a public good to a business. As this business model began to develop, the news industry experienced layoffs, a decrease in quality, increase in quantity, and enhanced importance placed on advertising. The current news is delegitimized and polarized, with citizens being able to choose from where they get their news, thus eliminating shared experiences among ...

LSU Master's Theses
This quantitative content analysis uses course descriptions to find changes in journalism education at the University of Missouri, Louisiana State University, and the University of North Carolina over 100 years. This study found that there are two influencing factors that are inherent to the journalism profession: advances in technology and the maturity of the profession itself. These two influencing factors produced changes in technology used in curriculum, course focus (e.g. skill, theory, general knowledge, and history), and course topics (e.g. advertising, broadcasting, public relations, etc.) This study also found that leadership is the most influential factor of change ...
The Biased Language In Media Commentary At The 2018 Winter Olympic Games, 2018 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
The Biased Language In Media Commentary At The 2018 Winter Olympic Games, Gabriella Adriana Barattolo
This paper examines the media commentary at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games. It focuses on the commentary of five sports: Women’s Snowboarding Halfpipe, Men’s Snowboarding Halfpipe, Individual Figure Skating, Pairs Figure Skating, and Curling. The goal of this paper is to study the language choices that the media commentators made and uncover the gender bias within their language. The differences in how the commentators discuss athletes is significant to understand because it reveals the overall gender bias in sports that is still present in our society today.
Sleepless In Seattle: Three Writers, Three Concepts, 2018 Molloy College
Sleepless In Seattle: Three Writers, Three Concepts, E. Deidre Pribram Ph.D.
One of the most striking facts of narrative storytelling is how specific story elements, such as plot, character and structure may remain the same, yet the story told can be remarkably different. We see this, for instance, through the limitations imposed by generic conventions and via characters drawn to stereotype or type. Yet the meanings created are open to seemingly endless replenishment. Indeed, it is narrative's persistent renewability that helps account for the sway and pleasures story holds us.
Psychic Cleavage: Reading The Art Against The Politics In Independent Film, 2018 Molloy College
Psychic Cleavage: Reading The Art Against The Politics In Independent Film, E. Deidre Pribram Ph.D.
The voice Stewart (Sam Neill) hears in his head is Ada's (Holly Hunter) "mind's voice" which the audience hears twice: in voice-over narration at the opening and closing of The Piano. The otherwise mute Ada describes her mind's voice to nine-year-old Flora (Anna Paquin) while attempting to explain the disappearance of the child's father. The scene is subtitled for the audience as mother communicates with daughter in sign language. Ada tells Flora that she did not need to speak with him (he remained unnamed) as she could, instead, lay her thoughts in his mind, "like they ...
