Abstract: Mainstream television scarcely features Deaf persons. When they do, they are usually cameo, secondary, or multidimensional characters. This paper examines the Deaf identity salience of a primary role on the popular show Switched at Birth to explore the ways in which Deaf identities can be positively shown as main characters in entertainment media. The identity of one of the shows main characters is tracked across four episodes in the first season. Work such as this is important as it not only examines a show which successfully features a character with a stigmatised identity, but quantifies the way in which that stigmatised identity is invoked. This paper bridges cultural sociology with social psychology to gain a deeper understanding of the importance of Deaf identity representation in entertainment media.

Abstract: Although the heightened salience of partisan identity has been discussed as a primary contributing factor to political polarization in the United States, surprisingly little research has directly measured the cognitive state of partisan identity salience. With the use of multiple measures of identity salience, we tested whether exposure to partisan conflict-framed news increases salience of partisan identity in the minds of self-identified Democrats and Republicans. Furthermore, we validated the multiple measures of identity salience in terms of concurrent validity, convergence validity, and predictive validity.
