Taking A Stand By Kneeling: An Analysis Of National Anthem Protest Coverage, 2017 University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Taking A Stand By Kneeling: An Analysis Of National Anthem Protest Coverage, Vincent Pena
Theses from the College of Journalism and Mass Communications
Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers decided to protest the national anthem before a 2016 NFL preseason game because of systemic racial inequality and instances of police brutality, sparking a nationwide debate about the First Amendment, the national anthem in sports, and race, among other topics. His protest influenced many similar protests, including one by three members of the Nebraska Cornhuskers football team. This paper looks at the media coverage of the protests and the aftermath, examining both national and local print and broadcast news sources, to determine the degree to which the coverage adheres to the protest paradigm ...
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 ...
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 ...

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 ...

Proceedings of the New York State Communication Association
The purpose of this paper is to review the history of the iPad and its influence over contemporary computing. Although the iPad is relatively new, the tablet computer is having a long and lasting affect on how we communicate. With this essay, I attempt to review the technologies that emerged and converged to create the tablet computer. Of course, Apple and its iPad are at the center of this new computing movement.
The Evolution Of An Enduring Expertise: Understanding Irish Economists In Irish Public Discourse In The Great Recession, 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
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?, 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?, 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 ...
