A Typology of Framing Research-- 2
A Typology of Framing Research: It needs to be tangible
The fact that a lot of attention has been paid to framing effects lies on its conceptual
advantages in that cognitive theories are more explicitly applicable to the formation of the effects.
The consequences of the research have been found across disciplines: the effects of framing on
decision-making (Brewer & Kramer, 1986; Flesishman, 1988; Kahneman & Tversky, 1979,
1982; Tversky & Kahneman, 1981; Jervis, 1992; Roskos-Ewoldsen, Copeland, & Hoffman,
1995; Schelling, 1984; Shah & Domke, 1996), evaluation and attribution (Gamson, 1992;
Iyengar, 1990, 1991; Smith, 1987), thoughts and feelings (Schenck-Hamlin, Procter, & Rumsey,
2000; Price, Tewksbury, & Powers, 1997b), attitude and behavioral intention (Davis, 1995), and
so on.
To many scholars, however, the research project appeared to have reached a stalemate
resulting from ambiguous conceptualization of “framing” (Brosius & Eps, 1995; Entman, 1993;
Scheufele, 1999). This criticism seems plausible considering the tendency of context-specific
approaches lacking in generalizability of theoretical premises and assumptions. Although some
scholars tried to explicate the knotty problem (e.g., Entman, 1993; Scheufele, 1999), the
impression of the research on framing still seems kaleidoscopic. Large proportion of the
skepticism about framing research for a potential theory could be attributed not only to its
conceptual vagueness of framing but also, more importantly, to the lack of well-standing
categorization of the research.
The main purpose of this paper is to suggest a typology of framing research to give a
comprehensive image of the framing research seemingly scattered, hopefully.
