Balancing Transparency And Privacy In A University Sexual Misconduct Case: A Legal Public Relations Case Study, Chelsea Woods, Shari Veil

Journal of International Crisis and Risk Communication Research

The University refused, claiming the information would violate survivors’ privacy. The decision sparked public backlash, forcing the University to combat accusations that it was prioritizing reputation over student safety. This case study provides insight into the crisis management process by exploring how key actors in the case made decisions. Drawing from theoretical perspectives including stakeholder theory and the ethics of care ...

Crises Frame Dynamics: Frame Diversity In News Media And The Role Of Governmental Actors, Fynn Gerken, Toni G.L.A. Van Der Meer Oct 2019

Crises Frame Dynamics: Frame Diversity In News Media And The Role Of Governmental Actors, Fynn Gerken, Toni G.L.A. Van Der Meer

Journal of International Crisis and Risk Communication Research

This study aims to understand the dynamic evolvement of frames in news media coverage of the Ebola crisis (2014-2015) and their interplay with narratives put forth in governmental organizations’ (GOs) press releases. An automated-content analysis was applied to U.S. newspapers and GOs press releases on the Ebola epidemic. The findings of time series analyses illustrate how the scope of frames in news media becomes narrower (decreased diversity) with the presence of immediate and problem-focused crisis frames and wider (increased diversity) with more progressive frames. Additionally, the results imply that a level of shared interpretation (frame alignment) between media and ...

#Whyididntreport: Using Social Media Analysis To Inform Issues With Sexual Assault Reporting, Jordyn Warren Jun 2019

#Whyididntreport: Using Social Media Analysis To Inform Issues With Sexual Assault Reporting, Jordyn Warren

LSU Master's Theses

The #MeToo movement allowed victims of sexual assault to go public with their stories. When Dr. Christine Blasey Ford came forward with allegations against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh in September of 2018, she was scrutinized by President Trump for not reporting the incident to authorities “when it happened nearly 30 years ago.” Promptly, #WhyIDidntReport came to fruition on Twitter, uncovering the shame victims feel and the complexities behind why so many individuals didn’t and still don’t report their assaults. Victim-service agencies “provide victims with support and services to facilitate their physical and emotional recovery, offer protection from ...

This lack of professionals is dangerous because there are simply not enough professionals that are seeking to progress the field, and there’s not enough people to fight the increasing number of cyberattacks. The main goal for this project was to discover public relations tactics that ...

Results indicate seven types of crisis information seeking behavior and 17 types of crisis information sharing behavior crossing over platforms, channels, and information sources. The CISS scales provide a valid and reliable tool for crisis communication researchers and practitioners to measure publics’ information seeking ...

Factores De Motivación Y Desmotivación En La Creación De Hábitos Lectores En El Colegio Orlando Higuita Rojas, Ana María Sandoval Velasco, Cristian Camilo Gutiérrez Díaz, Jennifer Paola Noguera Melo

Licenciatura en Español y Lenguas Extranjeras

La motivación es el proceso que explica el inicio, la forma, la intensidad y la perseverancia de la conducta encaminada hacia el logro de una meta determinada. También puede ser entendida según Viau (2009) como una construcción teórica que no sólo es observable, sino que también identifica un estado dinámico de la situación, pues un sujeto al elegir una actividad o tarea se compromete y persevera para alcanzar su objetivo. Por ello, a partir de la pregunta ¿Qué factores de motivación y desmotivación afectan los hábitos lectores de los estudiantes de grado noveno del colegio Orlando Higuita Rojas? Se adelantó ...

Secondary Crisis Communication. A Question Of Actual Or Perceived Credibility?, Bengt Johansson Jan 2019

Secondary Crisis Communication. A Question Of Actual Or Perceived Credibility?, Bengt Johansson

International Crisis and Risk Communication Conference

An important aspect of crisis communication is secondary crisis communication, which focuses on how people communicate during a crisis. This study seeks to explore the mechanism of credibility in secondary crisis communication. Respondents in a large-scale experiment (N=2382) were exposed to a fictional news story about a terrorist attack and asked to what degree they would share the news story on social media. The design made it possible to test if the sharing of news stories was determined by its actual credibility (through the use of semiotic disclaimers in the news story), or by perceived credibility (the perceived credibility ...

The Rhetorical Situation Meets Adult Education: A Public Speaking Workshop For B-School Graduate Students, Lindsey Ives, Janet Tinoco, Sally Blomstrom

Lindsey Ives

Extant research indicates that there continues to be a gap between employer expectations and the oral presentation skills of B-school graduate students. In order to address this gap, the authors undertook a three-year effort to research, develop, and administer a public speaking workshop focused on preparing new business graduate students to meet industry demands for presentation skills and strategies. Survey and focus group data informed several revisions to the workshop plan. The series of revisions and participant responses point toward the importance of adjusting the elements of the rhetorical situation in order to account for the principles of andragogy when ...
