Beyond The Battle Lines: Channeling Curiosity, Humility, And Platinum During Racial Strife, 2018 Waubonsee Community College
Beyond The Battle Lines: Channeling Curiosity, Humility, And Platinum During Racial Strife, Tiye Sherrod
Iowa State Conference on Race and Ethnicity (ISCORE)
The goal of this program is to discuss how curiosity, humility, and platinum empathy can be used to discuss racial issues, particularly when emotions are running high. Often times, individuals who identify as white make honest attempts to be allies and often get blindsided by things like white guilt, white obliviousness, etc. that derail their efforts. In addition, people of color who are attempting to express their frustration with interpersonal microaggressions find themselves having difficulty being heard through their hurt and discontent. Although these miscommunications are not intentional, they can still do harm to everyone involved in the exchange. Learning ...
Trivialized Content, Elevated From: Aesthetics Of Secrecy In Turkish Politics In The 2000s, 2018 University at Buffalo, SUNY
Trivialized Content, Elevated From: Aesthetics Of Secrecy In Turkish Politics In The 2000s, Doruk Tatar
Secrecy and Society
This essay will first provide a brief history of the Islamist party's coming to power by means of its effective use of a populist imagery. The paper will then focus on the emergence of a new regime of secrecy in Turkish politics by looking at two high-profile legal cases, Ergenekon and the “Cosmic Room,” in which one can observe the blueprints of a struggle between different factions for taking over the state. During the investigations, secret documents about the wrongdoings of the secular establishment were leaked to and widely covered by the media. Sober debates on the contents of ...

Analysis Of Endocrine Response To Perceived Difference In Cross-Cultural Interactions, Carole Woolford-Hunt, Marlene Murray, Tevni Grajales Guerra, Kristina Beenken-Johnson
We live in a world where awareness of ethnic and cultural diversity is an ever increasing reality. Business and education turn to the social sciences to inform them about how to manage and optimize cross-cultural interactions. Although much research has been done on the impact of cross-cultural interactions on a wide range of variables, one less researched area is the endocrine response to cross-cultural interactions. In this study we set out to investigate the endocrine response to cross cultural interactions and the impact of these interactions on perceived differences. To do so we measured the pre and post levels of ...

London Has Fallen: A Case Study On Global City Branding, Terrorism And Crisis Communication, Fallon Porter
Advertising, Public Relations & Media Design Undergraduate Honors Theses
The year of 2017 brought challenges to London in the form of the four terror attacks that occurred throughout the year, negatively affecting London’s image and industries while creating a precarious environment for crisis management. The purpose of this project was to closely examine the effects of terrorism on London’s place brand and how London’s key actors and organizations responded to the unusual year of terror attacks. The #LondonisOpen for summer campaign represented both the impact of the terror attacks on tourism and the need to address terrorism in a strategic way. Additionally, key actors such as ...

Cultural Challenges When Memorializing Tragedies, Kjell Brataas
International Crisis and Risk Communication Conference
After a tragedy, victims and survivors often desire to memorialize what happened. This can take many forms, and finding the right way often involves a number of challenges. There will usually be differences of opinion among the bereaved, the injured and the uninjured survivors, and cultural aspects and differences play a major role. This presentation provides examples from around the world and hints on bridging the culture gap when memorializing a tragedy.

The Use Of Zingari/Nomadi/Rom In Italian Crime Discourse, 2018 University of Nebraska-Lincoln
The Use Of Zingari/Nomadi/Rom In Italian Crime Discourse, Theresa Catalano
Faculty Publications: Department of Teaching, Learning and Teacher Education
This study examines the use of the metonymies zingari/nomadi/rom [Gypsies/Nomads/Roma] in Italian media discourse, in order to critically reflect on their relation to the perception of Roma. The author analyses the frequency of these terms in general discourse and crime discourse, as well as the way they are used in context. The findings reveal that nomadi and rom are used to directly and indirectly index Roma, and have a significant impact on their ethnicization and criminalization. In addition, the episodic framing of crime events, combined with the use of these metonymies, erases the Italian ...

Globalized Fandom: The Ou Mei Tong Ren Culture In China, 2018 University of Iowa
Globalized Fandom: The Ou Mei Tong Ren Culture In China, Yijie Wu
Honors Theses at the University of Iowa
This paper discusses the fandom culture of "ou mei tong ren" in China. "Ou mei" refers to "Western," and "tong ren" are the fan community that create derivative works based on an original text. Although "ou mei tong ren" culture is similar to "slash" fandom in the West, it is originated from Japanese Boys' Love and Dojin culture. This paper examines the globalized history of "ou mei tong ren" fandom. Furthermore, it associates the "ou mei tong ren" fandom with the recent gender studies and the changing discourse of feminism in China, and the government’s attitude towards this subculture ...
Acculturative Stress And Identity Negotiation: A Dyadic Experience, 2018 University of Kentucky
Acculturative Stress And Identity Negotiation: A Dyadic Experience, Ana X. De La Serna
Theses and Dissertations--Communication
Institutions of higher education in the United States have long been attractors for international students from all over the world. The number of international students had been constantly growing until the past couple of years. This is a concerning issue because international students play several important roles in higher education institutions. International students bring different points of view that enhance other students’ learning and institutions gain financial benefits from the presence of international students. Thus, it is important to understand how to improve the experience of international students. For the present study I used a phenomenological approach to explore the ...
Property, Postsocialism, And Post-Yugoslav Identity: A Feminist Communication Performance Ethnography, 2018 University of Massachusetts Amherst
Property, Postsocialism, And Post-Yugoslav Identity: A Feminist Communication Performance Ethnography, Jennifer Zenovich
This dissertation analyzes how women in the postsocialist former Yugoslavia perform gender in the transition from socialism to capitalism by considering their material and symbolic relationships to property. Using performance ethnography to theorize the relational, embodied, and discursive ways in which identity has been mobilized in the former Yugoslavia, the central question is how insights from the postsocialist world can critique notions of the individual as well as global capital. Through the prism of postsocialist and postcolonial feminist theory and performance studies, I focus on three contexts: women’s feminized labor as sustaining the tourism industry in Montenegro, my rape ...
Americanized Chinese Dishes As Heritage Food And Bridging Identities, 2018 The College of Wooster
Americanized Chinese Dishes As Heritage Food And Bridging Identities, Megu Itoh
Senior Independent Study Theses
Chinese food has become ingrained in the lives of everyday Americans. But while ordering Chinese takeout is now an ordinary occurrence, Chinese food culture still experiences the lasting consequences of discrimination in the United States. First viewed as the uncivilized other and later as the exotic other, the status of Chinese food has shifted overtime. Chinese food has also experienced changes in its actual form, adapting to the American palate by adjusting flavor and presentation. My research explores the ways in which this Americanized Chinese food has impacted the identities of Chinese restaurant workers, and continues to manifest change within ...

Effects Of Crisis News On Intercultural Tolerance: An International Comparative Study, 2018 Messiah College
Effects Of Crisis News On Intercultural Tolerance: An International Comparative Study, Anthony Eseke
International Crisis and Risk Communication Conference
Human beings are “cultural animals who know and see and hear the world through socially constructed filters.” . Fundamental to these filters are identities. Through the frames of identity, people often negotiate the dialectics of the ‘self’ with/against ‘the other’. The media in their reportage of conflicts and crisis produce and reinforce these dialectics. However, to what extent and directions do these reports influence social tolerance in the audience? This study therefore examined the effects of crisis/conflict news on otherness. The study defined otherness as the appraisal attitudes of tolerance, apathy, or intolerance towards other bodies based on ...
The Impact Of Cultural Communication On Team Performance, 2018 Portland State University
The Impact Of Cultural Communication On Team Performance, Bret Hunley, Smarajit Chakraborty, Stephen Macdonald
Engineering and Technology Management Student Projects
The trend in today’s corporate workforce continues to move towards becoming more culturally diverse; while beneficial, to maintain competitive edge this element also increases functional challenges between working group members. In order to achieve a high performing team, it is imperative management understands the cultural and lingual differences among the individual members, and develop practices that diminish these challenges. Workforce diversity has been identified as being able to add value to the overall outcome; however, success ultimately depends on the team’s ability to interact culturally, communicate effectively, and understand the mannerisms unique to each team member’s individual ...

Self-Disclosure, Gender, And Patient Satisfaction In The Doctor-Patient Relationship, 2018 Minnesota State University, Mankato
Self-Disclosure, Gender, And Patient Satisfaction In The Doctor-Patient Relationship, Khadiza Tul Jannat
All Theses, Dissertations, and Other Capstone Projects
It has been well established that the doctor-patient relationship is integral for providing quality health care and sustaining patient satisfaction. Additionally, research has indicated that doctors' self-disclosure is considered as an essential interpersonal component of relational development. In terms of the doctor-patient interaction, previous research has produced numerous studies investigating the relationship between doctors' communication behaviors and patient satisfaction. Scholars have also explored how communication styles are associated with doctors' gender, and patient satisfaction. However, there is still a gap in the existing research concerning the connections between doctors' self-disclosure, gender, and patient satisfaction in doctor-patient interactions. My qualitative study ...

Microfinance: Combating World Poverty One Small Business At A Time, 2018 Liberty University
Microfinance: Combating World Poverty One Small Business At A Time, Alison Basney
Senior Honors Theses
Poverty is a major problem that reaches millions of people around the world. Although many organizations and individuals work daily to combat this, much of the work done to reduce poverty lacks sustainability and serves only to remedy to the effects of poverty, rather than create a solution to the causes of poverty. Microfinance can be very basically defined as the provision of banking to the impoverished who would not otherwise have access to these services. This purpose of this thesis is to show that microfinance is the ideal solution to the poverty problem by using research and evidence from ...
