Abstract: This presentation utilizes original research on leading online sexual assault prevention programs’ verb choice. Despite finding these programs have increasingly incorporated feminist aims, an overemphasis on enhanced communication skills and cautionary tactics directed at potential future victims remains. College females overwhelmingly occupy the central space of preventative responsibility. Femininity is described as a risk factor, and the role of masculinity in rape prevention is largely ignored. Attempts to pinpoint identifiable rape-risk scenarios are problematic. I posit current emphasis on female psychological preparedness is detrimental and argue that programs would benefit from exploring how masculinity can become part of rape prevention.

Abstract: When considering audience, framing research generally assumes its subject to be a fully functional adult with agency. For some groups, including young children, this is not a reality. Children rely on parents for interpretation of media messages, allowing the parent to pass on his or her interpretation of a text to the child. In this project on boy culture, I explore my theory of the frame conduit, that is a person who receives a media frame, interprets its dominate message, then cycles it back to another person. Using both qualitative and quantitative methodologies, this project analyzes more than 200 advertisements from five parenting magazines to explore the behavioral frames present in ads featuring boys. Through this analysis I consider how the behavioral frames of boys may shape mothers’ assumptions about appropriate boyhood and consider the ideological implications of these themes for sons of mothers exposed to such ideologies.

Abstract: Chr?tien had an ambivalent relationship with national defence while PM. He committed the military often, but at the same time starved it of resources. An evaluation of his actions reveals that while his impact is significant, it is not unique.

Abstract: Despite juvenile justice systems’ widespread use of short-term residential placement, little is known about its effects on recidivism. Even less is known about its effects on female juvenile offenders. This study, sponsored by the National Institute of Justice, evaluates the impact of the Girls and Boys Town (GBT) model in short-term residential care settings for female juvenile offenders. The evaluation, currently underway, utilizes a multi-site, quasi-experimental design with a matched comparison group. The design consists of a treatment group (n=315), a subsample comparison group with 5 days or less of GBT programming (n=51), and a matched comparison group (n=366) who received probation. The outcomes to be assessed include academic performance, substance abuse, sexual activity, family relationships and recidivism. Girls will be interviewed using AUDIO–CASI (Computer Assisted Self Interviewing) touch screen technology. The analysis will use 1) chi-square statistics to compare baseline characteristics of the two groups, 2) survival curves to examine the time to arrest, 3) Cox proportional hazards, and 4) HLM techniques (where appropriate) to examine the probability of recidivism and other behaviors. This paper presents the knowledge base concerning the effects of short-term residential treatment, its implementation in three sites, and the policy implications of this research.
