The Social Practice of Human Rights: Charting the Frontiers of Research and Advocacy
A community structure analysis (exploring variations in community/national demographics linked to differences in reporting on critical issues) compared cross-national coverage of cross-border transit migration through Mediterranean and Central European countries in leading newspapers, one per country, in 16 countries, analyzing all articles of 250 words or more from 10/01/14 to 11/01/15. The resulting 238 total articles were coded for “prominence” and “direction” (“government responsibility,” “society responsibility” — including foreign aid, or “balanced/neutral” coverage) and combined into composite “media vector” scores for each newspaper (range 0.1132 to -0.2785, a total range of .3917). A ...

If there is one constant we can all expect in life, it is that there will always be change.
These changes, may they be destructive, dividing, didactic or opportune, are what define our future moving forward.
As we go through the motions, we rarely notice the quiet transformation, the metamorphosis of unassuming things from language to our environment and relationships to conversation.
That is the nature of evolution.
Political Action And Your Library Association, 2017 Oregon College of Art and Craft
Political Action And Your Library Association, Elsa Loftis
Political action. Libraries. The two seem to intersect more often than one might expect (unless one is a library worker, supporter, or patron; in which case it doesn’t seem terribly unusual). People in our line of work are often called upon to assume the mantle of library-worker-activists. These calls to action affect us in our various roles as professionals, as private citizens, and as members of the Oregon Library Association.
Our association supports Oregon libraries, the people who work in them, and the communities we serve. That commitment casts a wide net in a large state full of people ...
Enhancing Civic Knowledge/Inspiring Political Engagement: The Role Of Public Libraries In Civic Participation, Donna Cohen
For the past several months I have been conducting “civic education” workshops under the umbrella title: Civics for Adults—To Enhance Civic Knowledge and Inspire Political Engagement. I doubt there is anyone in the library community who is not concerned about the public’s level of civic understanding, political discourse and civic engagement. As Robert Putnam pointed out in his book Bowling Alone, the cohesive function of social and civic groups—as with the simple bowling league—has withered, and along with the demise of those groups a correlative decline in political activities like voting. Public libraries should be primary ...
Fake News And Information Literacy: Creating Resources To Develop Source Evaluation Skills At The University Of Oregon Libraries, Carolina Hernandez
In the months following the 2016 presidential election, much discussion has occurred regarding the proliferation of “fake news” and what impact it may have had on the election results. Regardless of whether there was an actual increase in fake news in the last year, it is certainly true that interest in the topic has increased dramatically. Interest appeared to peak in January, according to Google Trends (Google Trends, n.d.). Widespread concern over how to prevent the spread of this problem has lead to possible solutions cropping up often.
Though often excluded from these recommendations, libraries have the opportunity to ...

Ngos In Turkey’S Media Field: Causes, Sources And Potentials For Development, Altug Akin, Burak Dogu
Markets, Globalization & Development Review
This study elaborates on the non-governmental organizations in Turkey that operate within the broadly defined media field, where a wide variety of organizations, associations, movements and platforms are observed. Focusing on the two most disputed subdomains of the media in Turkey, namely news and information technologies, this descriptive research, at the first level, examines the causes or existence reasons of the NGOs along with their strategies, operations and achievements or failures. Their organizational forms and resources are studied at the second level. Third level of the study investigates their relations with a particular focus on their operational context. It has ...

How Do Iowa Farmers Obtain And Use Market News?, 2017 Iowa State College
How Do Iowa Farmers Obtain And Use Market News?, J. Parry Dodds, K. R. Marvin
Research Bulletin (Iowa Agriculture and Home Economics Experiment Station)
How farmers get market news and what changes they suggest in the handling of market news is the subject of this study. The information herein was primarily obtained from a survey of 600 Iowa farmers interviewed in April and May 1949. It deals with the way farmers used market news in their last sale of any of six selected commodities before the interview. The importance of this information is indicated by the fact that, in 1948, the six commodities selected accounted for 90 percent of Iowa's cash farm income of $2,121,172,000.
Practically every farmer in the ...

What Does The Iowa Farmer Want From Radio Market News?, J. Parry Dodds, K. R. Marvin
Research Bulletin (Iowa Agriculture and Home Economics Experiment Station)
Most of the results in this report are based on a personal interview survey of Iowa open-country farmers. Ninety-six percent (178,000) of the operators of Iowa open-country farms sold one or more of Iowa's six top cash farm income products in 1948.
About 92 percent of the open-country zone farm operators listened to day-to-day broadcasts of market reports* before making their last sales of butcher hogs, cattle, corn, soybeans, cream or whole milk and eggs.
Black Models Matter: Challenging The Racism Of Aesthetics And The Facade Of Inclusion In The Fashion Industry, 2017 The Graduate Center, City University of New York
Black Models Matter: Challenging The Racism Of Aesthetics And The Facade Of Inclusion In The Fashion Industry, Scarlett L. Newman
All Graduate Works by Year: Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects
The global fashion market is expanding every day, but often, the global fashion runways do not reflect that reality. On average, black models make up for six percent of models used on the runway during the fashion month calendar. This small percentage is also mirrored in advertisements and editorials featured in popular fashion magazines. In the 1970s, black models were met with great opportunities, and that success trickled down into the 1980s and the 1990s. As the 90s came to a close, top designers opted for an aesthetic that ultimately excluded models of color, but black models beared the brunt ...
The Failure Of News Media Agenda-Setting On Cannabis, 2017 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo
The Failure Of News Media Agenda-Setting On Cannabis, Amanda Cranston
This study uses the agenda-setting theory (McCombs & Shaw, 1972, p. 176) to examine the various aspects of cannabis coverage in the news media and how news media have presented cannabis and the numerous debates over cannabis uses. Cannabis has been a focus of U.S. news media since the 19th century and has been historically misrepresented in national and local news media. More recently, the U.S. has seen a great shift in the public’s attitude towards cannabis. With more and more states legalizing medical and even recreational use, news media are surging to meet the demands of its publics, even creating entire sections in certain regional newspapers for the cannabis beat. The national news media must take a different approach than those regional papers though; marijuana is not legal at the federal level nor in many states in any form. Both national and regional newspapers must address the issues accompanying the road to legalization at the federal level since federal law may supersede state law in any case as the legislation currently stands.

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 ...

The Ni Una Menos Movement In 21st Century Argentina: Combating More Than Femicide, Polly Terzian
Student Honors Theses By Year
The Ni Una Menos (Not One Less) movement was a march of over 200,000 people that took place in front of the Argentine National Congress in Buenos Aires, Argentina on June 3, 2015. A group of Argentine women journalists organized this march to focus national attention on the need to combat femicide (the misogynistic killing of women) in Argentina as the death rate estimated that one woman was killed by a man every thirty hours. Mobilization for the movement emerged through the social media platform, Twitter, which served a vital role in the dissemination of the message and slogan ...
What Qualifies As Crisis Coverage & Why Does It Matter?: Establishing Characteristics Of Crisis Reporting Using 2015 Terror Attacks In Paris, Brooklynn L. Gray
Honors Theses AY 16/17
The November 13, 2015 Paris attacks serve as a recent and relevant example of the different approaches news and crisis-reporting take. Three main aspects serve as dominant features in crisis reporting: timeliness, authority, and the level of the crisis (often death toll or infrastructure damage). To measure credibility, a content analysis tracked these features within a sample of online articles published by BBC (British Broadcasting Corporation), NPR (National Public Radio), and The New York Times. A randomly selected 10% of the articles came from the ProQuest News database and NPR’s website. The code tracked presence and absence of characteristics ...
