Abstract: This article attempts to critically analyze the naively but widely accepted findings in the field of political communication about gender difference in political discussion based on feminist perspectives. The current study suggests the concept of discussion opportunity structure, which shows the gendered construction of political discussion network. It implies that political discussion takes place based on reciprocal interactions with people, which are inevitably consequences of gender relations, or social structural positions in general. Using this concept, I tries to identify the gendered discussion network as a result of women’s limited positions in the discussion opportunity structure in three ways: gender segregation, social segregation, and ideological segregation. Then, I suggest feminist intersectionality as a promising framework for examining gender difference in research on politics. I conclude that gender differences in political discussion arise not because women are essentially different from men in terms of psychological traits like avoidance of conflict, having more generous attitude toward others’ opinion -as political communication scholars often argue-, but because of the structural, situational, and institutional factors that construct women’s discussion networks, which are inevitably sexually, socially, and ideologically segregated.

Abstract: Understanding how adolescents come to be informed participants in democracy is a key concern in political socialization. However, our understanding of this process is hampered by limited research on the antecedents of a sufficiently wide array of communication behaviors and cognitions, in addition to a limited repertoire of knowledge outcomes in adolescent research. This study seeks to further the literature by addressing how discussion frequency, elaboration, and network diversity are related to factual and structural knowledge among adolescents. In addition, we utilize multilevel modeling to assess both school and parental effects on the various elements of political discussion. Results suggest that frequency of discussion is related to both factual and structural knowledge, whereas discussion elaboration is related only to structural knowledge. The multilevel models suggest that both aspects of both schools and families are related to discussion frequency, elaboration and network diversity.

Abstract: In an era of increasing online political discussion, what place does face-to-face communication and discussion have in models of political behavior? In the past, scholars focused on how discussions with friends and family influenced voter’s preferences and knowledge about candidates. While much of the literature has shifted towards the effects of online discussion on political knowledge and behavior, little has been done to update the discipline’s understanding of personal interaction that still exists. Using time-series survey data, this paper analyzes the changes in face-to-face political discussions in the shadow of increasing online discussion. This paper will also use current survey data to assess voter’s preferences for political discussion. Finally, this paper develops an updated model of how traditional political discussion among family and friends affects voting preferences and political knowledge.

Abstract: In this paper we evaluate common approaches to the measurement of political discussion in the survey literature. We compare the use of “discussant generators” and, for lack of a better term, “general” approaches to the measurement of network size, agreement, and disagreement. We further evaluate various criteria for assessing agreement, including shared party identification, shared gender, shared race, and respondent self-assessment of tendency to politically agree with specific discussion partners. We assess the extent to which research conclusions about the size of networks and the extent of exposure to political disagreement are likely to vary based on these different measurement approaches in the literature. We also evaluate the extent to which associations between network size, agreement, and disagreement and outcomes such as political knowledge and political participation are likely to vary depending on the measurement approach. We conclude that descriptive assessments are probably only weakly affected, but relationship assessments may well be more substantially affected by measurement technique, especially for network size.

Abstract: This study examined the effects of two facilitation strategies on asynchronous discussions in a Chinese online course. Discussion criteria and sample message were applied to expect more students’ participation and the higher quality of postings in this study. However, the findings indicated that they did not increase students’ participation whereas the sample message negatively influenced the quality of online discussions. We conjecture that the sample message yielded simple responses (i.e., agree or disagree) rather than their own opinions.
