1. Blue, Mary. "The effect of the writers’ Communist ideology on the 1950s Television Series The Adventures of Robin Hood." Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Association for Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, The Renaissance, Washington, DC, Aug 08, 2007 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2020-02-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p203059_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: The Adventures of Robin Hood was produced in England and first aired in England, Canada and the United States between 1955 and 1958. The show is a perfect choice for a content analysis of the television writing of blacklisted communist writers since recent articles have added to the list of blacklisted writers, the series to which they contributed, the pseudonyms used by most of the writers, and what is known about their level of participation. However, no study has yet analyzed the content of the television series they wrote.
Sixty of the 117 episodes produced in the first three years of the series are available on DVD. These shows were analyzed and coded using ten principles of American Communism to try to determine whether the political ideology of the writer may have influenced content.

2. Wilkins, Karin. "Conquering Evil: Interpretations of Ethnicity in Action-Adventure Heroes and Villains" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, San Francisco, CA, May 23, 2007 Online <PDF>. 2020-02-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p170634_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: American culture maintains a preoccupation with the idea of conquering evil, in the form of news and popular narratives as well as foreign policy objectives. The framework of this conquest implies an identified evil villain, who can be vanquished through the righteous acts of transcendent heroes. The articulation of ethnicity, intersecting with nationality, religious affiliation and gender, accentuates critical markers of difference within these texts. How different communities come to understand and engage these texts needs to be examined. This study explores how Arab American and other audiences interpret heroes and villains in action-adventure film through focus group research.

3. Wilkins, Karin. "Mapping Global Space and Terror: Arab Americans' and Others' Engagement with Action-Adventure Film" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, San Francisco, CA, May 23, 2007 Online <PDF>. 2020-02-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p168482_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: This work explores how Arab American and other U.S.-based communities map global space, fear and danger through their engagement with action-adventure film. While there is extensive literature demonstrating the limited characterization of Arab communities, of Islam, and of the Middle East, in popular as well as news narratives, we know much less about the consequences of these media portrayals. The differences in mapping, based on focus group and survey research, were striking. In discussions of action-adventure settings, Arab American groups and informants were much more likely than their counterparts to specify particular places over more generalized regions, and to be highly critical rather than justify these constructions. These groups' sense of danger in the world at large, dictating concern with travel outside of the known and familiar territory of citizenship, seemed contingent upon cultural identification as well as direct experience. The connection between identification, whether as an American citizen primarily or as an Arab constituent, and fear in the world is critical in understanding how cultural mapping predicates experiences and interpretations.

Abstract: Students do indeed learn by doing. Over the last four years, I have taught EU Politics through a study abroad course that actually takes the students to the EU. Prior to departure, the students spend an entire week study the politics, history, and organization of the EU. The week of lectures, readings and group projects ends with the group's departure for Europe. During their time in Europe, students continue to complete reading assignments, meet in groups and individually with the instructor, and participate in briefings at EU or EU-related offices. Students routinely report that the "being there" function of their learning enhances their ability to inculcate course material; moreover, they just find it to be a lot more intriguing and engaging. Students also report that their on-going dialogues with EU citizens while traveling in Europe further enhance the learning experience. This paper will report on various models for incorporating this in the curriculum and will provide student feedback as to the value of the experience.

5. Post, Jerrold. "Iran’s Nuclear Adventures and the Return of the Mahdi: President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ISPP 31st Annual Scientific Meeting, Sciences Po, Paris, France, Jul 09, 2008 <Not Available>. 2020-02-22 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p254828_index.html>
Publication Type: Paper (prepared oral presentation)
Abstract: The answer to a recurrent question concerning the provocative comments of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran, which seemed designed to produce chaos, may well be that it is exactly his goal. As a twelver Shi’ite there is substantial reason to believe that Ahmadinejad is committed to this belief system which asserts that a period of chaos will proceed judgment day which in turn will lead to an era of eternal peace. Twelver activists believe that by carrying out acts of religious belligerents they can hasten the arrival of the hidden Mahdi (the 12th imam). However the ability of Ahmadinejad to direct Iranian foreign policy is limited by the complex decision making system with most of the major resources being under the direct control of Supreme Leader Khamenei.
