Gendered Advertising To Children: An Analysis Of Differences In Male- And Female-Targeted Television Commercials, 2017 Northwestern University
Gendered Advertising To Children: An Analysis Of Differences In Male- And Female-Targeted Television Commercials, Meredith Ford
Undergraduate Research and Arts Exposition
Children are impressionable customers, and the media they consume influences their behaviors and perceptions. Gender stereotypes are highly prevalent in children’s media, which can often lead children to create idealized images of what boys and girls should be. This paper explores advertising in children’s television commercials given changes in our society promoting gender equality. Researchers studied commercials from 20 different television programs for children to find differences in male- and female-targeted advertisements. Commercials were coded for product characteristics, characters, and commercial logistics. Results show that children’s television networks primarily air male-targeted commercials. Additionally, female-targeted commercials were more ...
Sensationalism In Pakistani News Channels: A Downside Of Media Deregulation?, 2017 Northwestern University
Sensationalism In Pakistani News Channels: A Downside Of Media Deregulation?, Shakeeb Asrar
Undergraduate Research and Arts Exposition
One of the most dynamic in South Asia, Pakistan’s vibrant and outspoken media is de facto credited to the media liberalization policies of 2002 by President Pervez Musharraf. Yet, the country’s media landscape, particularly the private news channels, are known to be sensational for their exaggerated reporting style. Using Pakistan’s two mainstream news channels, Geo News and BOL TV, as case studies, this research digs deeper into the history and establishment of private TV channels to show how 2002’s media deregulation is connected to the present sensational nature of the country’s broadcast industry. The paper ...
Social Relevance And Innovation In Public Radio, 2017 Cal Poly Pomona
Social Relevance And Innovation In Public Radio, Malak Habbak
Butler Journal of Undergraduate Research
Since its founding, National Public Radio has been denied steady funding by the government and has therefore been focused and reliant on its audience for funding. This study explores National Public Radio’s (NPR) efforts to appeal to audiences by staying relevant and innovative in the face of changing technology and new media. The study content analyzes five years of news media coverage of NPR stations for news values and key messages. Out of 1,853 articles that were analyzed, about 23 percent were related to the stations’ efforts to remain socially relevant and innovative. Those articles were then examined ...
And That's The Word: Effects Of The Colbert Report On Political Knowledge And Participation, 2017 Illinois State University
And That's The Word: Effects Of The Colbert Report On Political Knowledge And Participation, Nicholas Canfield
Stevenson Center for Community and Economic Development
The Colbert Report was a satirical, political, and “fake” news show that lasted for almost a decade on the Comedy Central Network. Although many scholars have argued the program was less impactful and influential than Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show, phenomena such as the “Colbert Bump” show a definite impact on the political lives of many Americans. Using four quantitative surveys from 2008 to 2012, this thesis investigates the effects of watching The Colbert Report on individuals’ political knowledge and political participation. Results indicate non-Republican viewers increased their political knowledge, but not participation, from watching the show. The educational ...

Transitioning College Media From Print Focused Business Models To Digitally Focused Business Models, 2017 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
Transitioning College Media From Print Focused Business Models To Digitally Focused Business Models, Celina Oseguera
The noticeable downturn in print advertising indicates a need for change in the news industry business model. College media is not immune to this decline and need for change. A change in business model calls for transitioning to an alternative system that does not primarily rely on print products and advertising — a digitally focused business model. Many college media organizations around the United States have started to pursue this type of model, changing the way they produce and present news in the process. Taking into account the state of print focused business models in the general and collegiate news industry ...
Resolving The Civilian-Military Divide Through An Examination Of Select Members Of The United States Army Profession, Caitlin Bamkhead
Since the conclusion of the Vietnam War, the American public and the Armed Forces have steadily drifted apart. This has resulted in a division between the people of the nation and the individuals that defend its values. Consequently, as this division increases, the American public is thankful of military servicemen, but believes that service is something others should do. Conversely, the military’s sole purpose is to protect and defend the nation, its people, and its values, but it has become more isolated. Additionally, military service is becoming a family tradition in which outsiders cannot easily understand the values and ...
Alternative Media And Normative Theory: A Case Of Ferguson, Missouri, 2017 Southern Illinois University Edwardsville
Alternative Media And Normative Theory: A Case Of Ferguson, Missouri, Mark Anthony Poepsel, Chad Painter
This paper, based on in-depth interviews with journalists at alternative and advocacy papers in St. Louis as well as interviews with live streaming protestors, a new breed of citizen journalist, applies six characteristics commonly associated with the alternative press to coverage of the protests and police crackdown in Ferguson, Missouri, between August 9, 2014, and March 2015. Journalists from the alternative newspaper in St. Louis focused on progressive or radical values less than the literature predicted. The African-American newspaper in St. Louis found itself influencing the national and global agenda regarding Ferguson and the ongoing oppression of blacks in the ...

Finding Christ In Cinema: Examining Secular Film Theologically, 2017 Ouachita Baptist University
Finding Christ In Cinema: Examining Secular Film Theologically, Evan Wheatley
For me as a teenager, secular films were merely a form of entertainment. A trip to the movies meant the chance to escape to a “galaxy far, far away,” to stand alongside Harry Potter in his latest confrontation with Lord Voldemort. I did not realize at the time the parallels between the Force in Star Wars, and the Christian God, or how Harry and Voldemort’s cinematic struggle can be seen as an allegory for the fight between good and evil.
At the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, I was introduced to how God can use secular film to challenge our ...
Binge On: The Phenomenon Of Binge Watching, 2016 La Salle University
Binge On: The Phenomenon Of Binge Watching, Rachael Snyder
This paper looks the phenomenon of binge watching. First, the technological advances that made binge watching possible are discussed. Next, the psychological benefits of watching television are briefly summarized. Finally, the element of shows that were considered the most “binge worthy” are investigated. By looking at what they five most recommend shows to binge watch (Orange is the New Black, House of Cards, Game of Thrones, Breaking Bad, and Orphan Black) had in common, there is now a better understanding of what makes certain television shows get binge watched. The appeal of these shows plots, characters, and popularity all play ...

Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary Sacred Waters Film, 2016 California Polytechnic University San Luis Obispo
Chumash Heritage National Marine Sanctuary Sacred Waters Film, Cory B. Jones
The debate to designate a National Marine Sanctuary off the Central Coast of California has been alive for nearly 30 years.
With a recent move by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) to nominate the stretch of water as a sanctuary the issue has become one of great concern to local stakeholders.
With concern for additional bureaucracy and regulation that could negatively impact the local economy people choose to stand in opposition. Yet many that are concerned for the future of the region's waters want the protections from offshore oil drilling and other harmful practices that a Sanctuary ...

Inventing The ‘Authentic’ Self: American Television And Chinese Audiences In Global Beijing, 2016 Singapore Management University
Inventing The ‘Authentic’ Self: American Television And Chinese Audiences In Global Beijing, Yang Gao
Research Collection School of Social Sciences
This article examines the ways educated urban Chinese youths engage American television fiction as part of their identity work. Drawing on theories of modern reflexive identity, and based on 29 interviews with US TV fans among university students in Beijing, I found these youths are drawn to this television primarily because they perceive the American way of life portrayed on it as more ‘authentic’. This perception of authenticity must be examined within the socio-cultural milieu these students inhabit. Specifically, torn between China’s ingrained collectivist culture and its recent neoliberal emphasis on the individual self, my respondents glean from US ...
Will Power: Learning What It Takes To Build A Radio Show (Not A Podcast) At Will-Am, 2016 Augustana College, Rock Island Illinois
Will Power: Learning What It Takes To Build A Radio Show (Not A Podcast) At Will-Am, Benjamin Payne
Multimedia Journalism and Mass Communication: Student Scholarship & Creative Works
What does it take to build a public radio show from the ground up? That was the question I asked throughout my Multimedia Journalism & Mass Communication (MJMC) Senior Inquiry. But I didn't just conduct research to find an answer—I served a professional internship to find an answer. Over the summer of 2016, I interned with "The 21st", a statewide public radio talk show produced by WILL-AM of Illinois Public Media in Urbana, Illinois. As the show had only been on the air for three months by the time I began my internship, I was in a unique position to learn what it takes to build a public radio show from the ground up: a voice that distinguishes the program editorially and aesthetically; an audience that contributes to—as much as it listens to—the program, from whatever devices they so choose; and a team that collaborates creatively and congenially day after day, no matter how cramped the newsroom may be.
All In The Game: Communitarianism And 'The Wire', 2016 University of Dayton
All In The Game: Communitarianism And 'The Wire', Chad Painter
Communication Faculty Publications
Communitarian ethicists argue that social identity is formed by community relationships, emphasizing the connection between an individual and his or her community. News organizations are part of that community. Indeed, journalism only functions properly in terms of the public and public life, and as part of a larger community. This textual analysis study focused on the breakdown of the fictional Baltimore community depicted in the television series The Wire. Five institutions—the police force and justice system, the labor force, local and state politicians and government, the educational system, and the daily newspaper—have failed, and, in turn, the city ...
