AbstractFeminist organizations and activist groups from the Women’s Suffrage movement to the Women’s March have utilized media relations tactics and techniques to share organizational messages. Over time, the art of media relations has evolved from a tactical role to a strategic necessity, one that is vital to the success of any activist organization or group as they seek to inform, educate and/or persuade their intended audience through the use of media and social media. This essay identifies best practices for feminist activist groups and organizations to help begin or improve their media relations efforts, ranging from initial hiring, to media relations planning and social media strategy.

Flash-Based Physical Simulation in Deaf Education Dynamic Media VS. Static MediaBaran, Harry Christopher (2011-08-01)The main purpose of this project was to develop a Flash based physical simulation to examine if simulations benefit deaf students and to identify the benefits to deaf students after using it. It was also done to determine if deaf students benefited more from the simulation when used in a teacher-centered class or more when used in a student-centered class. The study suggests that deaf students benefit from simulations and that the benefit is they make learning abstract concepts easier for deaf students to understand when they are coherent, engaging, welcoming, serve the students’ purpose for using them, and are responsive to the students’ needs and ways he/she does things. The findings also indicate the benefits deaf students gain from using simulations depends on how the teacher uses it in class. This study found that the most appropriate and beneficial use of simulations for deaf students is using them in a teacher-centered class to supplement instruction taught directly by the teacher and not in a student-centered class by student self-instruction. A Flash-based physical simulation was created using information about photosynthesis but with dynamic images, video, and animations simulating the parts of photosynthesis, the process of photosynthesis, and the importance of photosynthesis. The principles of Human-Centered Design Theory were used as a guide to analyze the simulation. Research was further calculated by comparing scores on written tests given to students in the teacher-centered classroom and student-centered classroom as well as surveys, and interviews to further discuss the simulation and reaction students had to it.
Media Misinformation and Media Literacy: How it Affects Climate Science ValidityDavalos-Pacheco, Olivia J. (2023)The purpose of this study is to analyze and evaluate the persisting spread of misinformation throughout our various media sources. This information is crucial to finding what ways this spread perpetuates myths and disbelief regarding climate science. With these findings I will also be exploring how the lack of media and information literacy plays a major role in this disbelief. The population I will be focusing on within the study is the people of the United States of America. I will be conducting this study through a qualitative researching process, starting first with a deep analysis of literature from reputable sources. With this analyzed literature, I will then organize it into a comprehensive literature review broken down into subheadings. Multiple surveys and studies were performed throughout the literature. Looking closely at the way climate misinformation is spread within our media, and how we assess and interpret said media is extremely important considering how it effects trust, belief and perceived validity in climate science.
The Hostile Media Effect and Media Bias during the 2021 Capital RiotsRobinson, Michael (2021)2021 Capitol Riots was a riot caused by Trump supporters under the pretense that the government, primarily the Democratic Party, was influencing the election. In addition, the supporters believed that the mainstream media also played a role in hiding the election fraud from the people, ultimately causing people to storm the capital due to the belief of them defending democracy. In this paper, I discuss the hostile media effect, a tendency in which people with a solid preexisting idea on an issue to call media coverage bias and media bias, a news outlet`s bias on an issue, when it comes to the Capital Riots. These two tendencies can be seen as two major contributing factors in the voter fraud idea to grow and spread across the group.
