Heroines Of Film And Television: Portrayals In Popular Culture, Carol Savery, Maja Bajac-Carter, Bob Batchelor Dec 2015

Heroines Of Film And Television: Portrayals In Popular Culture, Carol Savery, Maja Bajac-Carter, Bob Batchelor

Carol Savery

As portrayals of heroic women gain ground in film, television, and other media, their depictions are breaking free of females as versions of male heroes or simple stereotypes of acutely weak or overly strong women. Although heroines continue to represent the traditional roles of mothers, goddesses, warriors, whores, witches, and priestesses, these women are no longer just damsels in distress or violent warriors.

In Heroines of Film and Television: Portrayals in Popular Culture, award-winning authors from a variety of disciplines examine the changing roles of heroic women across time. In this volume, editors Norma Jones, Maja Bajac-Carter, and Bob Batchelor ...


Women, Kin-Keeping And The Inscription Of Gender In Mediated Communication Environments., Julie Dare Aug 2014

Women, Kin-Keeping And The Inscription Of Gender In Mediated Communication Environments., Julie Dare

Julie Dare Dr

The notion of the Internet as a transformative communications platform, through which concepts such as embodiment, gender, and identity can be transcended, deconstructed, or subverted, represents an enduring theme in communications literature over the last two decades.1 Underpinning early analyses was the premise that new opportunities presented by the Internet were driving innovative communication and behavioral practices. For example, the ability to interact anonymously opened the door for identity play and gender swapping, the implications of which, as Nancy Baym suggests, were "theoretically intoxicating"

Towards A Critical Intersectional Rhetoric: Critical Rhetoric Meets Intersectionality, Michelle Kearl Dec 2013

Towards A Critical Intersectional Rhetoric: Critical Rhetoric Meets Intersectionality, Michelle Kearl

Michelle Kelsey Kearl

The most recent treatments of critical rhetoric have attempted to expand its appropriate methodological focus (Hess, 2011; Hess & Herbig, 2011; Middleton, Senda-Cook, & Endres, 2011). It is within this expansion that I pitch this theoretical interrogation and building of critical rhetoric. While the newest research argues for a variety of in situ, ethnographic, and other considerations of ‘live’ rhetorics, my investments are more directly in the responsibility of critical interpretation of texts. McKerrow (1989) establishes a series of obligations for critical rhetoricians as they analyze rhetorical artifacts; two critiques, eight praxes, and a perpetual criticism is no small endeavor. I argue here, however, that this is insufficient in the analysis of the rhetorical productions of marginalized or vernacular discourses. Emerging from an analysis of the debate over Proposition 8 in California, I argue that critical rhetoricians must also attend to intersectional considerations as they emerge in the rhetorical productions of vernacular discourses. This project will articulate, then, a critical intersectional rhetoric that explores the project of critical ...


From Freedom Rides To Justice Rides: Analogizing Social Movement Rhetoric In A Post-Identity America., Michelle Kearl Dec 2013

From Freedom Rides To Justice Rides: Analogizing Social Movement Rhetoric In A Post-Identity America., Michelle Kearl

Michelle Kelsey Kearl

This presentation explores the rhetorical strategies, specifically the use of analogy, used in the rhetoric of the Created Equal organization. Created Equal, an anti-abortion activist organization, argues that it is a social movement in the vein of the Civil Rights Movement. The rhetoric employed by the organization is remarkable in its pedestrian attempt to veil its religious ideology, as well as its attempt to closely associate itself with the traditional Civil Rights agenda. Specifically, the tactics, images, and promotional material used and produced by the organization both explicitly and implicitly equivocate their commitments to stopping abortion to the demands of ...

Journalism In A Pr World, Michael I. Niman Ph.D. Apr 2013

Journalism In A Pr World, Michael I. Niman Ph.D.

Michael I Niman Ph.D.

Mike Niman discusses the future of journalism in a PR-dominated communication environment. In particular, he examines the migration of talent from journalism to the PR industry, the collapse of mainstream journalism and the role of an emergent alternative media as American journalism goes through metamorphosis from what it was to what it could become. Journalism is a social good that should equip people to understand and resist spin. Niman argues that mainstream American journalism, rather than rising to this challenge, has transparently succumbed to serving as an arm of the corporate PR industry, thus laying the groundwork for its own ...

Depictions Of Husbands In Miscarriage Accounts, Jennifer Fairchild, Michael Arrington Dec 2011

Depictions Of Husbands In Miscarriage Accounts, Jennifer Fairchild, Michael Arrington

Jennifer Fairchild Ph.D.

Little research has employed social support literature to investigate the support needs of women coping with the loss of a child—or the potential of partners to fulfill those needs. The researchers gathered miscarriage narratives through interviews with 24 women and analyzed the depictions of supportive and unsupportive responses from husbands. Narrators perceived partners either as ideal support sources or as clueless to enact support.

Gendered Social Movements: A Critical Comparison Of The Suffrage And Gay Marriage Movements., Michelle Kearl Dec 2009

Gendered Social Movements: A Critical Comparison Of The Suffrage And Gay Marriage Movements., Michelle Kearl

Michelle Kelsey Kearl

The elections of 2008 saw the passage of several overwhelming and expansive condemnations of gay rights across the nation. Most damaging to the gay marriage movement was the successful passage of Proposition 8 in California, the first time that the right gay marriage was repealed. I argue that the continued modeling of the civil rights framework defers an analysis of the argumentative strategies of historically gendered movements such as the suffrage movement and is a disservice to the strategic potential of the marriage equality movement. The critical comparison mad where between suffrage and marriage equality opens the potential for our ...


Representations Of Alana In Computer And Video Games, Jeffrey Brand, Jakub Majewski, Scott Knight Sep 2009

Representations Of Alana In Computer And Video Games, Jeffrey Brand, Jakub Majewski, Scott Knight

Scott J. Knight

A new way to view race in media is presented in a nuanced picture that sometimes defies simple racial dichotomies. It explores the racial characterization of the heroes and she-roes of various video games. The potential for more balanced and fair representations of ALANA [African, Latin, Asian, Native American] is perhaps greater in CVG's [computer and video games] than in the traditional media. However, only small advances have been made in offering choice and a range of character roles for ALANA while eschewing traditional media stereotypes.

What Might Have Been: The Communication Of Social Support And Women's Post-Miscarriage Narrative Reconstruction, Jennifer Fairchild Dec 2008

What Might Have Been: The Communication Of Social Support And Women's Post-Miscarriage Narrative Reconstruction, Jennifer Fairchild

Jennifer Fairchild Ph.D.

This dissertation explores the ways in which miscarriage survivors construct their stories of pregnancy and the subsequent miscarriage. Although some research has examined illness narratives, women's miscarriage narratives have not received enough attention. An examination of miscarriage narratives is warranted because miscarriage has significant physical and psychosocial implications-effects that are often related to stigma and threats to individual identity. Narrative can be utilized to cope with the stigma of miscarriage, challenges to the woman's identity after a miscarriage, and altered relationships after the fact. Researchers have devoted considerable energy to considering the ways that serious illness alters people ...

The Emerging New Human Being, The Culture-In-The-Self, And Ahp's New Multidimensional Intercultural Initiative, Carroy U. Ferguson Jun 2008

The Emerging New Human Being, The Culture-In-The-Self, And Ahp's New Multidimensional Intercultural Initiative, Carroy U. Ferguson

Carroy U "Cuf" Ferguson, Ph.D.

The emerging New Human Being will need to explore and come to terms with a phenomenon, operating deeply, uniquely, and diversely at a core level of all human beings on the planet. I call this phenomenon the “culture-in-the-Self,” a term coined some years ago by cofounders of Interculture Inc. What we commonly think of as culture is just the surface of this phenomenon, often appearing outwardly in the diverse “forms” of cultural scripts, beliefs, values, behaviors, and customs). I want to call attention to what goes on beneath surface culture(s), and how AHP intends to play a primary role ...

Lies The Media Tell Us, James Winter Dec 2006

Lies The Media Tell Us, James Winter

James P Winter Dr.

Understanding how media shape our thinking about social issues, we look at examples such as the bias against labour unions, environmentalists portrayed as cult members, owing to eight of the ten largest corporations in the world are involved in gas and oil production and sales or auto production. Big Pharma is studies, and the role of the media as drug pushers. How media are cheerleaders for wars. The examples of Haiti and Cuba.
