1. Poulos, Christopher. ""Good guys, semi-good guys, and well, really bad guys . . . "" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the Eighth Annual Congress of Qualitative Inquiry, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Urbana, Illinois, <Not Available>. 2018-12-15 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p556662_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: When I was a kid, Saturday mornings were for cartoons and Westerns--and sometimes, cartoon Westerns... In this paper, I will offer a serial reflection on the Western, from "The Man Who Shot Liberty Valence" to "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" to "Star Wars" to "Cowboys and Aliens"--where the heroes (and their sidekicks) of the frontier won their way through "true grit"--and sometimes, rapier wit--to save the day (or the town, or the world). I will focus my own lens on the ethos of the Western hero, as seen in the semi-comin construction of "good" vs "sort of good" vs "bas" across a range of characters.

"Good Guys and Bad Guys: A Content Analysis of New York Times and Washington Post Coverage of the 2004 Coup d’État in Haiti" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 93rd Annual Convention, TBA, Chicago, IL, Nov 15, 2007 Online <PDF>. 2018-12-15 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p192231_index.html>

Abstract: The author performed a content analysis of the characterization of Haitian political factions in New York Times and Washington Post articles published prior to the coup d’état on February 29th, 2004. Jean Bertrand Aristide supporters were referred to with negatively valued terms significantly more often than opponents of the democratically elected president. Mainstream news coverage of the 2004 coup d’état privileges U.S. economic and policy interests over an accurate representation of the history of U.S./Haiti foreign relations.

Abstract: Taking profiles on networking apps as self-presentations, this study examined how guys who meet guys (GMG) presented themselves on Jack’d, a networking app tailored for GMG.
This research took a cross-cultural perspective by comparing 204 profiles from the U.S. and 204 profiles from China. The results showed that Chinese GMG tended not to show their face on Jack’d than American GMG. Chinese GMG also mentioned a fewer number of relational goals than American GMG. In terms of self-presentation strategies, Americans tended to self-promote and to ingratiate, while Chinese tended to supplicate and to intimidate. This study showed that the differences of low-/high-context culture and individualistic/collectivistic culture reflected in the GMG’s online presentations.

Abstract: Recidivism rates are especially high among methamphetamine addicts. Considering the societal costs associated with methamphetamine use, efforts to reintegrate this population are crucial. Imperative then is an understanding of potential barriers addicts face in their attempts to reintegrate. This study explores barriers methamphetamine addicts face in Montana. Shocking images of methamphetamine addicts are broadcast across the state in television, radio and print advertisements, as part of the state’s latest anti-drug campaign – the Montana Meth Project. Although the campaign is intended to reach teens to prevent the onset of meth use, they reach another population: current and recovering meth addicts. From a labeling perspective, campaign use of images that negatively portray drug addicts has unintended consequences for drug populations. However, the unintended consequences for these populations have failed to gain attention in the literature despite the implications suggested by labeling theory. This study explores the impact of the anti-drug campaign on the worldview of recovering meth addicts. Results from 20 interviews with recovering meth addicts show that the Montana Meth Project has a significant impact on the worldview of this population. The findings suggest that the campaign has a negative impact – stereotypes stigmatization and differential treatment – and that the campaign is viewed by recovering addicts as a barrier to their reintegration. The findings of this study demonstrate the unintended consequences of anti-drug “shock” advertising on a population of drug addicts and highlights significant implications regarding their reintegration.
