Abstract: The current study examines whether products of so-called 'popular' cultural industries can be consecrated as works of art. By focusing on the social construction of definitions of quality in the field of television drama series production in Israel, the current study challenges Pierre Bourdieu’s theory that no artifact of 'popular culture' can be consecrated as a work of art because of the incompatibility of such artifacts with the autonomy-of-art ideology. My study of the broad empirical corpus, including television reviews and interviews with acclaimed Israeli television creators, reveals that definitions of artistic quality and commercialism in the Israeli field of television production show less tension than Bourdieu suggested. Furthermore, the findings suggest that the autonomy-of-art ideology is reconfigured to contain also the capitalist ideology.

Abstract: September 11, 2001 was significant in world history, as it was not only a disaster of epic proportions, but also witnessed the development of the War on Terror, and its accompanying rhetoric This analysis examines the rhetoric of the War on Terror from Kenneth Burke’s dramatistic perspective. The primary focus of this analysis is the September 20, 2001 address to the U.S. and the world, the 2002 State of the Union Address, and the memorial speech on September 11, 2002. The author argues that these speeches form the foundation of a rhetoric surrounding the War on Terror. This paper will engage the rhetoric of the War on Terror by describing the tragic frame, and the ways in which the rhetoric is deployed through that frame. This will lead to an examination of how framing the situation tragically leads to an act-agent emphasis in its description of the situation. Through this rhetoric, George W. Bush communicates the situation through a tragic frame to make sense of U.S. military response, one that is not limited to one particular action, but instead can be extended to other theatres as a result of the original threat. This framing serves to construct the U.S. response as inevitable, natural, and beyond question. Future implications of this rhetoric are examined in terms of how this rhetoric will dictate future action. The paper concludes with a discussion of how a comic evaluation of the War on Terrorism may be more appropriate, and better allow personal and social growth.

Abstract: In this paper we investigate the impact of entertainment television on citizens’ performance of their civic duties. The impact of entertainment shows on political information acquisition is often overseen, in comparison to news broadcasts, which are considered the only source of political information in modern media. In this paper, we borrow from learning theories to examine whether TV-dramas can facilitate political learning. We conduct interviews with regular viewers of six American TV-dramas in Greece and explore how shows affect their political understanding as well as their civic habits. The findings suggest that exposure to TV-dramas leads to indirect acquisition of insights and practical information and affects viewers’ discussion patterns. These findings support the role of TV-dramas as one alternative explanation on how citizens enhance their understanding of the political world, how they formulate their opinions and how they perform their civic tasks.

Abstract: Examining the effects of crime dramas is a relatively new field of study with the effects not completely understood. There have been numerous studies that examine the effects viewing crime dramas have on jurors and individuals within the criminal justice system, but very little has been done to examine the effects on lay individuals. The purpose of this exploratory study is to examine the relationship between viewing crime dramas and perceptions of the effectiveness of the criminal justice system. Crime dramas were broken up into three categories: classic, tabloid, and a mixture of classic and tabloid crime dramas. Using a survey, this study was conducted at Elizabethtown College in the Spring 2013 with a total sample of 221 undergraduate students. It is hypothesized that individuals who watch classic and tabloid crime dramas will perceive the criminal justice system to be more effective than those who do not watch crime dramas and that individuals who watch classic crime dramas will perceive the criminal justice system to be more effective than those individuals who watch tabloid crime dramas. This poster will discuss the preliminary findings as well as possible implications on the perceptions of effectiveness of the criminal justice system.
