Abstract: New cartographic methods in the sixteenth century began to join and displace the production of pictorial vedute. At this pivotal moment, when locating a place with specificity became possible, Venetian artists included in the background of mythological paintings a detailed view of the area near the Piazza San Marco or an evocation of the lagunar skyline — even when these stories were set originally in specific locations other than Venice. This paper addresses the "naturalism" of the identifiable city view in a fictional scene alongside the emerging theme of islands in literary, artistic, and cartographic discourses and the interdependency between fiction, space, and place in Venetian thought. "Naturalism" will be explored here through the ways in which "accurate" city views explore the real through the fictional (and vice versa) as part of the sixteenth-century interest in the utopic and heterotopic landscape and its particular manifestations in Venetian culture.

Abstract: The intersection of politics and movies has been frequently examined. However, media depictions and popular culture representations of the American government and unelected public officials or public administrators has generally been overlooked, leaving unexplored what types of messages about government these films are communicating to citizens. This paper uses latent content analysis to examine and classify how the top domestic grossing films of the last fifty years have portrayed government officials. The paper focuses on the role of the public servant in popular culture film, specifically arguing that government themes are a frequent subject in movies. In addition, a survey of these movies indicates that there are seven types or classifications of public administrators depicted in films. Overall, based on these findings, the paper concludes that movies depict government officials generally positively and in multiple ways.

Abstract: Modern sociologists recognize that socially stratified societies typically share three common characteristics: rankings apply to social categories of people who share a common characteristic without necessarily interacting or identifying with one another, people’s life experiences and opportunities depend heavily on how their social category is ranked, and the ranks of different social categories tend to change very slowly over time. This photographic essay locates the range of examination in the everyday experiences of Native Americans in Navajoland (Ganado, Arizona) to distinguish the forms of abject poverty in which a good majority of Navajo people live. This photo essay also identifies the sub-systems of social stratification that exist within this Nation. As the Navajo Nation represents a nation within a nation (as it exists within the United States) and as it is generally characterized by a loosely organized government that draws heavily on a very problematically defined and instituted Bureau of Indian Affairs, much of the funds and other resources rarely reach the people that they are intended to assist. This leads to the people being forced to live in conditions that would be considered deplorable even in the best of situations, but that are seemingly normative for this group of underrepresented minorities in the United States.

Abstract: Most contemporary scholarship and most media coverage about single-parent families focus on the decades since 1960 and depict this period as the era when both single-parent families and social controversy over them soared. But neither single-parent families created by divorce and non-marital childbearing nor controversy about these families is new. This paper uses primary data to trace the evolution of discourse about single-parent families in a representative sample of U.S. popular magazine articles published between 1900 and 1998. The analysis traces the evolution of magazine discourse about single-parent families and compares that discourse with demographic trends underlying single-parent family formation and with trends in public opinion about single-parent families after 1960. I find that the types of single-parent families depicted in popular magazines reflect underlying trends in single-parent formation although single-parent families resulting from non-marital childbearing are overrepresented. I also find that, over time, magazine discourse shifted away from presenting single-parent families as a social problem and toward identifying solutions to the dilemmas created by single parenthood. While public opinion became more tolerant of single-parent families after 1960, trends in magazine depictions were mixed. Declines in the frequency with which magazines contained normative assessments of single-parent families suggest greater tolerance. But as normative assessments became rarer, they also became more negative. The increase in negative assessments may reflect the de facto victory of supporters of greater tolerance for single-parent families with the passage of no-fault divorce and the sharp rise in non-marital childbearing after 1970.

Abstract: The present study utilizes a social cognitive framework in experimentally investigating the relationship between viewers' social judgments and exposure to television news portrayals that intersect race and violent crime. Results revealed significant differences between women and men in evaluations of criminal suspects presented in these TV news reports of rape. However, only minimal support was found in support of the prediction that the race of the perpetrator would be associated with allocations of prison sentences. The hypothesized interaction between sex of participant and suspect race was not supported. The implications and limitations of these findings are discussed.
