1. Peter, Jochen. and Valkenburg, Patti. "Do Questions About Watching Internet Pornography Make People Watch Internet Pornography?

Abstract: The aims of this study were (a) to test whether survey questions about watching internet pornography elicited that behavior and (b) how this differed between adolescents and adults. This phenomenon, known as the question-behavior effect, may cause serious methodological and ethical problems to survey research, particularly when minors are involved. In an online-survey-based experiment within a two-wave panel study, participants (n = 246) were randomly assigned to either a condition in which questions on the use of Internet pornography were asked in both waves or a condition in which this use was assessed only in wave 2. Neither among adolescents nor among adults did a question-behavior effect occur. The study suggests that asking people about watching internet pornography does not stimulate that behavior. Our results also contradict implicit assumptions in earlier research that conceives of adolescents as inherently more susceptible to question-behavior effects compared to adults.

Abstract: We compare communication in the settings of whale watching and elective ultrasounds, two interactive embodied and discursive human-nature events. We focus on the expressive eruptions that often mark such experiences, on the discourses that surround and entangle them, and on ways these communicative moments might point us to new understandings about the intersections of nature, culture, and the body.

Abstract: Patients and non-patients encounter a number of barriers to accessing medical knowledge about their bodies and their medical conditions. Internet medicine, self-advocacy, support groups, direct-to-consumer marketing and other efforts aim to give patients and non-patients more information about their bodies. This essay examines the power relations between technology users and technology creators. Deploying Michel Foucault’s “care of the self” and feminist science and technology theories this essay claims that personal technology and power is best understood as a way that actors take on power through rhetoric in addition to being a force that has power over actors. Through a close reading of the Apple keynote presentations of during the first year of the Apple Watch, this paper argues that the makers of the Apple Watch recognizes wearers as both agents and as objects of medical power.

4. Fu, Wayne. and Sim, Clarice. "Why Do People Watch What They Watch? Explaining Film Import Choices of Individual Countries Among the Production Sources" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the International Communication Association, TBA, San Francisco, CA, May 23, 2007 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-10-15 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p171571_index.html>

Abstract: This study examines the theatrical film import choices of individual countries about nine countries as primary production sources, which are the US, Italy, France, UK, India, Russia, Germany, Japan, and Hong Kong. An empirical scheme is devised to explain the quantities of film imports by countries from the respective exporters, modeling determinants of cinema market scale, cultural distance, linguistic similarity, and geographic proximity. Based on a panel dataset (52 importers × 9 exporters) drawn from the UNESCO, the various regression analyses show that the frequency of film imports by a consuming country from an exporting country significantly increases in the exporter’s domestic cinema economy and decreases in the cultural distance between the traders. Also, the sharing of a common language intensifies the bicountry film flow, while locational adjacency does not seem to determine the film traffic level among the 9 exporters.
