Abstract: Increasing economic and cultural inter-connectedness has challenged the traditional notion of the nation-state as a territorially and culturally contiguous unit. Many have noted a shift to a post-national or de-territorialized conceptualization of the nation and citizenship (Soysal 1994; Sassen 2006). We argue that the rise of globalization and the notion of global citizenship are separate but related phenomena that epitomize the shift from a world defined by nation-states to one with a post-national, global frame of reference. Relying substantially on world society theory, we ask how this global frame of reference has been incorporated into national textbooks, a realm traditionally dominated by nationalist discourse. Utilizing a cross-national data set coded from more than 500 school textbooks from 1970-2007, we explore the influence of globalization and world culture on national textbook content. We first describe trends of these two phenomena over time, noting an impressive rise in mentions of globalization and global citizenship. We then use a multilevel model to examine which textbook and country-level variables explain mentions of both. We find that both dependent variables are strongly predicted by the extent to which textbook content reflects the external world; however only global citizenship is predicted by institutionalized aspects of world culture, such as mentions of human rights. Moreover, we find no cross-national differences in incorporation, suggesting incorporation of these terms is a global norm. We also find strong support for the idea that globalization and global citizenship are distinct, yet inter-related, concepts that reflect larger world cultural discourse.

Abstract: The stereotyping of women in dependent and familial roles in advertising has traditionally prevailed according to numerous studies. This study examined the level of gender stereotyping in television advertising in the Arab Gulf region, where conservative traditions and patriarchal structures remain strong among native populations. There is very little research into gender portrayal in advertising in this region. Following the lead from previous studies, this research has found that traditional stereotyping patterns mostly hold ground in the Gulf region, but change is starting to appear in certain areas.

Abstract: A major question explored by research on relationship between media and society is whether media are agents of social change or reinforcers of the status quo. This study used media portrayal of women as an index to explore the relationship between media and society within the Chinese context. Through a content analysis of 352 cover pictures of Women of China, China’s official English women magazine for foreign publicity, we investigated whether and how the media portrayal of Chinese women relates to the social changes in China under an authoritative communication and political system. Our findings show that the image of Chinese women presented by the covers of Women of China was to a large extent influenced by the socio-economic and political-ideological changes in China. Rather than a literal portrayal of the “reality”, it is a symbolic representation of the Chinese women created through the interaction of party ideology, editorial policy and readers’ taste as well as the changing reality of Chinese women’s life and work

Abstract: Magazine advertisements from six publications in 2004 were analyzed to replicate an original, seminal study that assessed the use of sexual imagery in advertising in 1964 and 1984. Research indicates that media, advertising in particular, can create and sustain unrealistic images and stereotypes, especially of women. It is important to examine how the portrayal of women in advertising has changed over the past decades. Preliminary data analysis shows that across all magazine genres, in 2004, males appeared demurely dressed 83.5 percent of the time, while women are only shown as demurely dressed a third of the time. This enormous discrepancy in the level of dress between male and female models indicates that women are portrayed much more often as sexual objects than are men. This study will hopefully advance feminist scholarship through the thorough documentation of the trend of inequality in the portrayal of sexuality and gender roles of females in the past and today.
