The Evolution Of An Enduring Expertise: Understanding Irish Economists In Irish Public Discourse In The Great Recession, Joe Fitzgerald, Brendan O'Rourke 2017 Dublin Institute of Technology

The Evolution Of An Enduring Expertise: Understanding Irish Economists In Irish Public Discourse In The Great Recession, Joe Fitzgerald, Brendan O'Rourke

Other

This work focuses on the institutional and social contexts of Irish economists’ prominence in public discourse in Ireland during the Great Recession. While examining performative aspects of experts’ legitimacy is important, understanding the wider societal context of how particular professional expertise is recognised is also vital (Collins & Evans 2007). The economics profession generally is characterised by strong hierarchy and dense integration (Fourcade, 2009; Mirowski & Plehwe, 2009; Pautz, 2014), we explore such phenomena in the Irish context. The Irish context is of interest more generally as a prominent PIIGS country in the Eurozone crisis, as a small peripheral state and as a site of confluence between Anglo-American and European Influences. Its close relationships with both the United Kingdom and ...

How Do Iowa Farmers Obtain And Use Market News?, J. Parry Dodds, K. R. Marvin 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, Scarlett L. Newman 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, Amanda Cranston 2017 California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo

The Failure Of News Media Agenda-Setting On Cannabis, Amanda Cranston

Journalism

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 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 ...

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 ...

Cultural Resiliency And The Rise Of Indigenous Media: Book Review Of "The New Media Nation: Indigenous Peoples And Global Communication" By Valerie Alia, Derek Moscato

Derek Moscato

Valerie Alia’s book, The New Media Nation: Indigenous Peoples and Global Communication (New York: Berghahn Books, 2012, 270 pp.), points the way to major communication breakthroughs for traditional communities around the world, in turn fostering a more democratic media discourse. From Canada to Japan, and Australia to Mexico, this ambitious and wide-reaching work examines a broad international movement that at once protects ancient languages and customs but also communicates to audiences across countries, oceans, and political boundaries. The publication is divided roughly into five sections: The emergence of a global vision for Indigenous communities scattered around the world; government ...

Media Portrayals Of Hashtag Activism: A Framing Analysis Of Canada’S #Idlenomore Movement, Derek Moscato 2017 Western Washington University

Media Portrayals Of Hashtag Activism: A Framing Analysis Of Canada’S #Idlenomore Movement, Derek Moscato

Derek Moscato

The confluence of activism and social media—legitimized by efforts such as the Arab Spring and Occupy Movements—represents a growing area of mainstream media focus. Using Canada’s #IdleNoMore movement as a case, this study uses framing theory to better understand how traditional media are representing activism borne of social media such as Twitter, and how such activism can ultimately have an impact in political and public policy debates. A qualitative framing analysis is used to identify frames present in media reporting of #IdleNoMore during its first two months by two prominent Canadian publications. Emergent frames show that hashtag ...
