Examining The Connectedness Of Connective Action: The Participant-Initiated Facebook Pages In Hong Kong’S Umbrella Movement, Yin Zhang, Francis L. F. Lee 2018 Hong Kong Baptist University

Examining The Connectedness Of Connective Action: The Participant-Initiated Facebook Pages In Hong Kong’S Umbrella Movement, Yin Zhang, Francis L. F. Lee

HKBU Staff Publication

Contemporary large-scale protest campaigns are often marked by the presence of a wide array of individual- and small-group-based actions initiated by the participants themselves. However, scholars have rarely examined whether and how the participant-initiated actions are connected with each other, whether and how they are connected to the movement leaders, and whether the interconnections among the participant-initiated actions relate to existing divisions within a protest. This study examines 138 participant-initiated Facebook pages established during the Umbrella Movement in Hong Kong in 2014. The analysis shows limited connections among the pages on social media, and limited connections between these pages and ...


The Impact Of Social And Digital Media On Traditional Agenda Setting Theory In Relation To The Arab Spring Revolutions, Arianna Khan 2018 Florida International University

The Impact Of Social And Digital Media On Traditional Agenda Setting Theory In Relation To The Arab Spring Revolutions, Arianna Khan

FIU Graduate Research

The growing complexity of modern communications leads to enhanced abilities for individuals to disseminate information to the public. Traditional definitions of mass communication theories must to evolve to consider new modes of communication. Engaged individuals using modern technologies become citizen journalists and informed opinion leaders, able to take over the agenda setting functions of traditional media sources, including gatekeeping and framing techniques. In times of conflict, individuals increasingly use social and digital media to inform the public, rather than relying on traditional news outlets, leading to the need to expand traditional definitions of agenda setting theory. This paper draws conclusions ...


Finding Home After Fallout: The Future Of Fukushima's Forests, Katy N. Spence 2018 University of Montana

Finding Home After Fallout: The Future Of Fukushima's Forests, Katy N. Spence

Graduate Student Theses, Dissertations, & Professional Papers

This long-form journalistic piece is about radioactive forests in Yamakiya, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan, and how locals are dealing with it. Residents of Yamakiya were forced to evacuate their village in April 2011 following an explosion at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant.

One Yamakiyan, Hidekatsu Ouchi, stepped into the role of community leader and is the focus of this story. He hopes Yamakiya can use the radiation, rather than condemning it. Ouchi’s devotion to his community is connected to the Japanese concept of furusato, which refers to an individual’s obligation and nostalgia for family, community and place. The story ...


Fake News: Can We Correct It All And Does It Matter If We Don't?, Emma C. Brickfield 2017 College of the Holy Cross

Fake News: Can We Correct It All And Does It Matter If We Don't?, Emma C. Brickfield

Economics Department Student Scholarship

This paper looks to identify if correcting fake news articles is sufficient to prevent people from making decisions based on factually incorrect information. Through an experiment, I find that correcting a fake news article makes a person less likely to put money towards the issue that the fake story supported. I also find that over time people are more likely to forget the corrections but that it does not change their economic decision at a statistically significant rate.


Coproduction Or Cohabitation: Are Anonymous Online Comments On Newspaper Websites Shaping News Content?, Carolyn E. Nielsen 2017 Western Washington University

Coproduction Or Cohabitation: Are Anonymous Online Comments On Newspaper Websites Shaping News Content?, Carolyn E. Nielsen

Carolyn Nielsen

The technology that allows readers to post anonymous online comments on newspaper websites gives readers unprecedented opportunities to participate, but poses challenges to the journalistic value of transparency, practice of gatekeeping, and conception of expertise. This nationwide survey of 583 US journalists explores whether the technology has affected their work practices, workplaces, or news coverage. The study, grounded in social shaping of technology theories, finds that journalists are not opposed to sharing their web platforms with readers’ comments, but dislike user anonymity and ignore reader input. Despite the technological affordance that provides journalists a means to receive instant, global feedback ...

A Checklist For Mortals: Preparing For Death’S Arrival, Becky Daniel 2017 University of Nebraska-Lincoln

A Checklist For Mortals: Preparing For Death’S Arrival, Becky Daniel

Professional Projects from the College of Journalism and Mass Communications

We learn everything from our parents—how to walk, talk and treat potential life partners. Yet our culture in the United States makes it difficult to talk to our parents about death and those consequences have a real impact. Closing a loved one’s estate can stretch from months to years without proper planning. While death is constant, the death industry is not. It is ever changing. And while all lives have equal value, there are many preparations that one person may need (veteran, parent, lotto winner) while another does not. The best way to prepare for death is to ...

The Indianapolis Archdiocesan Newspaper In The Raymond T. Bosler Years, 1947-1976, William Doherty Ph.D. 2017 Marian University

The Indianapolis Archdiocesan Newspaper In The Raymond T. Bosler Years, 1947-1976, William Doherty Ph.D.

Department of History and Social Sciences

This chapter deals with Msgr. Bosler’s relations with two archbishops-publishers with very different approaches with regard to their editor’s independence. Bosler held that a diocesan paper ought not be a company newsletter filled with nothing but what is of “good report” of the Church, but rather deal with the pressing public foreign and domestic issues. Under Bosler’s editorial hand, that meant the Cold War, NATO, the United Nations, immigration, medical care for the aged and disabled, right to work laws, race, housing, McCarthyism, the John Birch Society, Vietnam, the women’s rights movement, and more.

In conducting ...
