Constructing the Quebec referendum : French and English media voices by Gertrude Joch Robinson( Book )

8 editions published between 1998 and 2019 in English and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The 1980 Quebec referendum was a momentous event that redefined Canada's nationalist ideologies. While the political implications of the referendum have been widely analysed, this is the first sustained study of the role played by the media in shaping and interpreting the referendum campaign. Robinson addresses interrelated issues in public opinion creation during the 1980 campaign. She explores how the ideologies of Quebec and Canadian nationalism were constructed and modified by the separate French and English networks, and how their idiosyncratic visual styles and thematic selections reinforced Montreal viewers' linguistic and political divisions. In addition, Robinson compares French and English media professionals and discovers how their work settings and their perception of their roles had become polarized a decade before through the imposition of the 1970 War Measures Act. The two journalistic groups were affected by its imposition in radically different ways, resulting in much more self-censorship and bland programming on the part of the French media than the English during the 1980 referendum. Finally, Robinson demonstrates how the instant playback capabilities of television, newly developed at the time of the referendum, have affected news discourses and turned electoral coverage into personalized and sensationalized 'tabloid formats.' These formats narrowed citizen's abilities to conceive of alternative political interpretations and actions

Gender, journalism, and equity : Canadian, U.S., and European experiences by Gertrude Joch Robinson( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 180 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This analysis of the journalism profession is unique in that it uses gender as a central explanatory variable, it is comparative, and it explores the impact of equity legislation on the profession in North American and Europe. The book's systematic focus on gender not only as a biological, but as a socially constructed attribute permits the author to address the systemic biases that are inherent in the social reproduction of the journalism profession. These biases lead to classificatory and evaluative procedures that have negative outcomes for female professionals. A gender approach can clarify the minority status of females in the profession and why there is a difference in the access, promotion, and remuneration between female and male staff. More importantly, the gender approach is able to pin-point the more intangible networks of male power, which exist outside the authority structure. Finally, this approach provides evidence of how the male denigration of females' managerial potential inhibit female promotions to top positions, and the difficulties females encounter in functioning in these roles."--Publisher's website

Mass Communication in Ferment Open Questions in the Historiography of the Field by Gertrude Joch Robinson( Book )

2 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Thomas S. Kuhn's paradigm theory, which explains the growth of science, can be used to challenge three aspects of the received history of North American communications research: (1) the beginning point of the field and its periodization, (2) the development of mass media studies as an articulated subfield, and (3) the role of new technologies in paradigm change. Historical evidence indicates that the philosophy of progressivism, which links new broadcast technology with social progress and the emergence of social psychology and sociology at the turn of the century, provides an empirical parentage for communication studies in the United States. The first institutionalization of the emerging discipline must therefore be sought at the Chicago school, not with P. F. Lazarsfeld. The Bureau of Social Research constitutes a second developmental change that articulates a paradigm for a new subfield--media studies. This paradigm was heavily influenced by governmental propaganda preoccupations during World War II, in which institute members were involved. Alternative, symbolic interactionist, and Marxist inspired paradigm groups were not able to challenge the Lazarsfeld limited-effects formula until the 1970s when the interactive technology debate provided an opening for a renewed assessment of communications assumptions.

International News in the Canadian and American Press A Comparative News Flow Study by Vernone M Sparkes( Book )

2 editions published in 1976 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study tested the power of "elite nation" factors (trade, population, and gross national product) to predict the amount of foreign news coverage for specific countries. A composite week for the first quarter of 1975 was randomly drawn, and ten Canadian and twenty-nine United States newspapers were coded for all news items reported on those days, yielding the total number of column-inches of foreign news coverage in each country, with a breakdown by country or geographical area. As expected, a rather large discrepancy was found between Canadian coverage of the United States (49% of foreign news) and United States coverage of Canada (1.72%). However, elite nation factors proved to be poor predictors for the United States foreign news coverage, and only one of the factors, trade, showed any predictive ability for the Canadian press. The results suggest that the elite nations themselves do not base their foreign news coverage on such matters as trade relations, population distribution, or economic development. (Author/RL)
