Abstract: A study of major western news outlets and blogging sites shows that – in the case of the letter from Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to U.S. President George Bush – the well-documented tendency of American news correspondents to frame religious news in political terms and to miss the religious implications of a major political-diplomatic story held true for bloggers as well.

Abstract: Despite consisting of primarily jokes Stephen Colbert had already used on his television program, The Colbert Report, Colbert’s speech at the 2006 WHCA Dinner left audience members shocked and uncomfortable. Colbert defies traditional understandings of irony, engaging in what I label performative irony, and utilizes irony’s critical edge, yet remains within a comic frame of acceptance. Colbert’s speech highlights the ways in which irony functions as enthymeme. Colbert also provides insight into how repetition can lessen irony’s enthymematic function- reducing the risk of misinterpretation, but at the expense of the protection irony traditionally affords.

Abstract: In democracies, the relationship between the constituent and the representative is of fundamental importance. Yet the nature of representation is not uniform throughout the world; political institutions are known to place constraints on leaders and citizens that shape their behavior, and thereby the character of representation. In this work, I expand upon the cross-national examination of representation, examining how representation varies with the dimensionality of politics in nations. I expect that party-voter correspondence will be high in nations with simple dimensional constructs. Alternatively, in countries with multidimensional political space, the probability of parties and voters converging on the same ideal point decreases. To test these expectations, I examine how well party positions mirror both the median and spread of voter preferences, conditional on the electoral institutions and political dimensionality of nations. Using data from a wide sample of nations and a new measure of dimensionality, I find that the positions of parties correspond more closely to those of voters in countries with low-dimensional political space, whereas electoral systems play a smaller role in the nature of representation.

Abstract: Although there have been women reporters on the front lines since the First World War and their number has increased more and more in subsequent conflicts in the twentieth century, it was only during the first Gulf War that the phenomenon gained momentum. The visibility of women war correspondents on national and international television channels is now taken for granted; and women journalists from newspapers have stood by the side of their male colleagues when covering the conflicts.

This paper deals with the controversial question of whether or not women journalists covering the news from the front lines ‘speak in a different voice’ from their male counterparts. War offers a special opportunity for exploring such a question, since it is particularly in war that the agenda and the rules of the game of still mostly male-dominated journalism come to the fore. This paper, based on research still in progress, aims at investigating whether women journalists (or at least some of them, in specific circumstances), once they have been admitted to the male preserve of foreign correspondents and furthermore to the most masculine of action systems such as war, are willing and able to create their own gender-based agenda and express their own point of view. To some extent, the creation of such an agenda may be encouraged and facilitated by the rise of so-called ‘journalism of attachment’, caring as much as knowing, as an ethical alternative to the professional ‘golden rule’ of detached objectivity.
