By providing students with a means by which to understand why popular texts are important to study-as well as how to examine these texts' underlying messages from a variety of rhetorical perspectives-Deanna Sellnow helps readers become critical consumers of the many popular culture texts that influence them in their daily lives.Features &BAD:amp; Benefits:This textbook unites rhetorical criticism with mediated popular cultural texts (e.g., film, television, rap music) in ways that relate directly to the experiences of people in society today.

Can television shows like Modern Family, popular music by performers like Taylor Swift, advertisements for products like Samuel Adams beer, and films such as The Hunger Games help us understand rhetorical theory and criticism? The Third Edition of The Rhetorical Power of Popular Culture offers students a step-by-step introduction to rhetorical theory and criticism by focusing on the powerful role popular culture plays in persuading us as to what to believe and how to behave. In every chapter, students are introduced to rhetorical theories, presented with current examples from popular culture that relate to the theory, and guided through demonstrations about how to describe, interpret, and evaluate popular culture texts through rhetorical analysis. Author Deanna Sellnow also provides sample student essays in every chapter to demonstrate rhetorical criticism in practice. This edition’s easy-to-understand approach and range of popular culture examples help students apply rhetorical theory and criticism to their own lives and assigned work.

In jüngerer Zeit ist eine Zunahme der medialen Berichterstattung über Skandale zu beobachten. Die begleitenden zahlreichen, teilweise aufgeheizten Debatten um die Art und Weise der medialen Skandalberichterstattung – erinnert sei etwa an die Fälle Strauss-Kahn, Wulff, Kachelmann oder Hoeneß – haben gezeigt, dass Skandale ein gesellschaftlich virulentes, jedoch nicht einfach zu greifendes Phänomen darstellen. Skandalberichterstattung kann sich einerseits als gesellschaftlich hochrelevant erweisen, als mit ihr auf Missstände, Werte- oder Normverletzungen aufmerksam gemacht und Diskurse über grundlegende Werte und Normen in Gang gesetzt werden können. Andererseits kann eine Häufung von Skandalberichten sowie eine Zuspitzung und Personalisierung in der journalistischen Aufbereitung von Skandalen gleichfalls zu unerwünschten Auswirkungen auf Einzelpersonen (wie zum Beispiel nicht gerechtfertigte Reputationsschäden) und möglicherweise auch zu negativen gesellschaftlichen Effekten (wie zum Beispiel Vertrauensverluste in die Arbeit von Medien, Politik und anderer gesellschaftliche Teilbereiche) führen. Vor diesem Hintergrund werden im vorliegenden Themenband grundlegende Aspekte der Thematik sowie aktuelle Studien und Sichtaufweisen auf die Thematik aus kommunikationswissenschaftlicher Perspektive vorgestellt. Der Band setzt seinen Schwerpunkt auf die bisher in der Forschung eher wenig beachteten Effekte von Skandalberichterstattung sowie deren Gründe und Genese.

Beschreibung: This book is a collection of papers in which cultural-historical activity theory (CHAT) is used to study science, technology and innovations. In the 16 chapters of the book an activity theoretical approach is developed through dialogue with the relevant theoretical approaches of science and technology studies, such as actor network theory, symbolic interactionism and Knorr-Cetinas's theory of objectual cultural practice. The book has three parts. The first one comprises empirical studies on creativity and change in research work and innovations. The cases studied include research groups in analytical chemistry, aerosol physics, biotechnology as well as innovations in medical technology by research-based firms. In making sense of the distributed creation, CHAT is put in dialogue with the systemic view of psychology of creativity, the systemic approach in history of technology as well as sociological theories of creativity. The second part compares systematically the similarities and differences between Deweyan pragmatism and CHAT, and shows how they can be used in a complementary way in empirical research. The third part evaluates actor network theory, constructivist conceptions of learning as well as the concept of routine largely used in organizational studies from the position of CHAT. In addition the concept 'object of activity' central in activity theory is discussed and elaborated in two chapters. The autor: Reijo Miettinen is Professor of Adult Education in the University of Helsinki and he was Vice director of the Center for Activity Theory and Developmental Work Research in 1995-2007.
