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 ...

History Of Journalism Education: An Analysis Of 100 Years Of Journalism Education, 2018 Louisiana State University and Agricultural and Mechanical College
History Of Journalism Education: An Analysis Of 100 Years Of Journalism Education, Hilary Akers Dunn
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 ...
Feeling Bad: Emotions And Narrativity In Breaking Bad, 2018 Molloy College
Feeling Bad: Emotions And Narrativity In Breaking Bad, E. Deidre Pribram Ph.D.
In an interview that took place in January 1984, five months before his death, Michel Foucault relates an anecdote to illustrate what he means by 'relations of power':
For example, the fact that I may be older than you, and that you may initially have been intimidated, may be turned around during the course of our conversation, and I may end up being intimidated before someone precisely because he is younger than I am. (292)
His is a simple, almost offhand anecdote but one that has lingered in my mind precisely because of the inadequate means we possess to explain ...
Viewer Discretion Advised: Moral And Emotional Codes In Nypd Blue, 2018 Molloy College
Viewer Discretion Advised: Moral And Emotional Codes In Nypd Blue, E. Deidre Pribram Ph.D.
NYPD Blue's opening shot is a white-on-black warning label: "This police drama contains adult language and partial nudity. Viewer discretion is advised." A self-imposed rating on the part of ABC, the show's broadcaster, it originated in response to the police drama's "controversial" use of (limited) profanity and partial nudity, a singular departure for conservative, "family-oriented" U.S. television networks and their advertisers. The addition of a viewer advisory, initiated by network and advertising caution, played on the show's controversial status, turning it to promotional advantage. From its debut, the series began to be watched by many ...
Straight Outta Money: Institutional Power And Independent Film Funding, 2018 Molloy College
Straight Outta Money: Institutional Power And Independent Film Funding, E. Deidre Pribram Ph.D.
In the last few years, and despite the increased prominence of American independent films, there have been surprisingly few feature films by women that have "made it" on the independent circuit. The success of an independet film can be considered by the following criteria: securing theatrical release, receiving critical and media attention, and obtaining visibility among audiences. The few films that come to mind as having met these criteria are Lizzie Borden's Working Girls (1986), distributed by Miramax; Julie Dash's Daughter's of the Dust (1991), a Kino release: and most recently, Allision Anders's gas, food, lodging ...

Cold Comfort: Emotion, Television Detection Dramas, And Cold Case, 2018 Molloy College
Cold Comfort: Emotion, Television Detection Dramas, And Cold Case, E. Deidre Pribram Ph.D.
To speak about emotions is to attempt to address a notoriously challenging and vast category of cultural existence, aking to undertaking an analysis of "the body" or "reason." But as contemporary work in cultural studies and poststructuralism has shown, undertaking explorations of the body and reason are extremely pressing and productive areas of critical inquiry. Culturalist approaches to emotions, however, have only recently begun to emerge as a distinct area of investigation. A useful entry point into the complexities of emotion as a sociocultural category is Raymond Williams' concept, structure of feeling.
Emotions, Genre, Justice In Film And Television: Introduction And Chapter 1, 2018 Molloy College
Emotions, Genre, Justice In Film And Television: Introduction And Chapter 1, E. Deidre Pribram Ph.D.
In many ways film and television studies are ideally suited for detailed analyses of the place of emotions in narrative and social discourses and practices. Emotions always have been central to how popular culture "works," how it creates its impact and meanings. Popular culture's complex, intricate deployments of emotion are a primary means by which it achives its status as popular. Cultural theorists have moved toward the analysis of popular culture precisely because it has mass emotional appeal and resonance. Herein lies its significance.
Smart-Teleprompter: An Online Teleprompter With Text Editing, 2018 The University of Akron
Smart-Teleprompter: An Online Teleprompter With Text Editing, Mikyla Wilfred
Honors Research Projects
Major: Computer Science
Project Sponsor: Dr. Collard
Number of Project Credits: 3
The smart-teleprompter is a website that allows a logged in user to edit text files as well as teleprompt them straight to the screen. A teleprompter is used by newscasters and other media professionals to read scripts while still looking at or near the camera. My project uses this concept creating a page that defaults to white font on a black background that can scroll through the script. The website allows the logged in user to save defaults of font color, background color, font style ...
In Media Res, 2018 Virginia Commonwealth University
In Media Res, Christopher Andrew Sisk
Theses and Dissertations
We are inundated by a constant feed of media that responds and adapts in real time to the impulses of our psyches and the dimensions of our devices. Beneath the surface, this stream of information is directed by hidden, automated controls and steered by political agendas. The transmission of information has evolved into a spiral of entropy, and the boundaries between author, content, platform, and receiver have blurred. This reductive space of responsive media is a catalyst for immense political and cultural change, causing us to question our notions of authority, truth, and reality.
