Korean TV Soap Operas in Taiwan: An Investigation of Consumers’ Clothing Purchase Behavior
Hsiu-Ju Hsu
International Journal of Marketing Studies , 2012, DOI: 10.5539/ijms.v4n3p16
Abstract: In a recent trend, Korean TV soap operas have become extremely popular in Taiwan. This article examines the relationship between Taiwanese female undergraduates’ favorite Korean TV soap operas and their clothing purchase behavior. A survey was conducted via written questionnaires, from which 937 were obtained for analysis. The data were analyzed using factor analysis, ANOVA, and t-test. The results revealed that different degrees of viewing frequency, involvement, and recall of favorite Korean TV soap operas make a significant difference in clothing purchase behavior with regard to such factors as attention, viewing motivations, purchasing motivations, and different stages of clothing consumption.
Asian Women in Australian Soap Operas: Questioning Idealized Hybrid Representation  [cached]

Asian Social Science , 2011, DOI: 10.5539/ass.v7n8p3
Abstract: Representations of Asian women in Australian soap operas and television dramas contribute to debate about the incorporation of ‘ethnic’ identities within multicultural Australia. As an alternative concept for analyzing representation, notions of hybridity as the mixing of cultural and racial identity have come into prominence. Hybridity is a complex concept and is not simply a progressive means of representing Asian women. Key criticisms of the hybridity theory are that it promotes a happy, safe and simplified vision of multicultural harmony, or that it leads to violence and alienation. In this paper, hybridity is further divided into bounded culture and translocal culture categories which together cover the range of meanings invoked in discussions on representation. The complex nature of hybridity then illustrated by an analysis of two television dramas with Asian women characters, Heartbreak High and Bondi Banquet. The analyses of these characters show that the contradictory elements of melodrama and realism are limiting and can still have the effect of representing Asian women as controversial figures within a multicultural Australian identity.
La educación en un contexto mediático: La apropiación educativa de las telenovelas juveniles (EDUCATION IN THE CONTEXT OF THE MEDIA: THE EDUCATIONAL APPROPRIATION OF YOUTH-ORIENTED SOAP OPERAS)  [cached]

Abstract: Resumen: Este documento es una rese a temática de lo planteado en los capítulos introductorios de la tesis doctoral en educación “La apropiación educativa de las telenovelas en los procesos educomunicativos formales. Una lectura desde las percepciones de un segmento de la población adolescente escolarizada urbana costarricense”, de Marisol Gutiérrez Rojas. El objetivo es dar cuenta del desarrollo de una experiencia de articulación entre dos prácticas polisémicas: la educación y la comunicación. En este marco se revisan: 1) El conocimiento y comprensión de los medios y sus productos en la educación formal y en la cotidianidad de las personas adolescentes. 2) La relación entre el discurso y la práctica educativas, a partir del modelo de comunicación con el otro, con quien se produce conocimiento. 3) Otras textualidades diferentes del libro y de aquellos saberes que se consideran como legítimos o “ense ables”, en este caso las telenovelas juveniles, con el afán de revisar y explorar su potencial como objeto de una apropiación educativa. Abstract:This is an abstract of the critical analysis written in the introductory chapters of the doctoral thesis on education “The educative appropiation of the soap-opera in the formal education-communication processes”. A reading from the perceptions of a segment of the costarican, adolescent, scholarized, urban population”, by Marisol Gutièrrez Rojas. This is to report the development of an experience of articulation between two polisemic praxis: education and communication. In this frame the following subjects are analized: 1) The knowledge and comprehension of the media and its products on the formal educational system and the daily life of adolescents. 2) The relationship between the discourse and the educative praxis, considering the model of communication with the “Other”, with whom knowledge is produced. 3) Other contents different from the one included in books and from those knowledges considered as legitimate or “teachables”, as is the case of the juvenile soup-opera, in order to revise and explore its potential as subject of an educative appropriation.

Verso e Reverso , 2012,
Abstract: Soap operas are a cultural phenomenon of recognized importance in Brazilian society. They have come into the atention of investigators since they represent concrete social processes that are not strange to the spectator′s reality. A large variety of social themes have already been discussed in soap operas, characterizing a broad spectrum which covers from daily ordinary events up to controversial situation of rupture, forcing public debate. This investigation at empted to identify and analyze how family arrangements, as well as familial and conjugal daily routine, were portrayed in six soap opera plots exhibited between 2003 and 2008 by Rede Globo network. The data collection was performed by the analysis of the soap operas chapter synopses, and the data was organized and discussed using the classic content analysis technique. The way Brazilian family is portrayed in the weekly TV ction incorporates new family arrangements, presenting new relationship construction possibilities originated during the last decades, in opposition to the conservative raditions
Introducing Educate~ online
Geoff Whitty
Educate~ , 2006,
Abstract: In 2001, the first issue of a new journal was published that focused on disseminating the work of postgraduate researchers at the Institute of Education. This new journal was called: Educate ~ The London Journal of Doctoral Research in Education. It offered a new opportunity to the community of postgraduate researchers, whether full-time and part-time, home or international, undertaking professional doctorates or MPhil/PhD research, to publish and disseminate their research. Educate~ offers a publication outlet for this sizable and diverse group of doctoral researchers, enabling the publication of work-in-progress as well as fully-fledged papers. It also offers a starting point for conversations between the Institute’s postgraduate researchers and its established academic staff, allowing each to learn from the other, thereby developing the Institute’s research community. These conversations have continued to develop with the biannual Doctoral School conferences, now a well-established feature here at the Institute. Indeed, the abstracts for the Summer Conference are included in this issue of Educate~. The inaugural Editorial, back in 2001, stated that “our success will depend on the continuing willingness of potential contributors to provide us with interesting, thought provoking and engaging material” and I encourage readers to look back through the online archives to see how successful Educate~ has been. The development of software to enable academic journals to appear online and, importantly, to manage the entire editorial process electronically, presented an opportunity for Educate~ that could not be missed. Educate~ has now successfully moved to an online format. Doing so allows Educate~ to integrate photographic materials, audio files and audiovisual files and even podcasts - like this one, into what it publishes. Indeed, Educate~ does not just contain abstracts from this year’s Summer Conference, but also podcasts of a number of the presentations that will be streamed during the conference. Eduacate~’s electronic presence also allows users of the site to post comments on the published work and for the authors to respond, making the journal a focus of the research community in the Institute. In that first Educate~ editorial, the Editorial Board expressed a hope that “in time, [it would] include doctoral students and established academics who are not necessarily based here at the Institute”. That vision has now been realised through Educate~’s move online, involving a name change that drops ‘London’ from its title, so that it is now simply: Educate

A song that will not die: Shifting symbolism in the interpretation of two sanguineous operas  [PDF]

Muzikologija , 2005, DOI: 10.2298/muz0505057v
Abstract: Bartók's well-known opera Duke Bluebeard's Castle has an internationally hardly known parallel in Willem Pijper's opera Halewijn. The Hungarian and the Dutch opera share the same motives; they make use of a historical, a literary and a musical heritage, both from eastern and western Europe, in different ways yet with remarkable similarities. This article is an investigation into the backgrounds of the two operas and into the contexts in which their motives developed - and continue to develop.

Abstract: March 24, 2005: While studying Gender Issues in Distance Education at Athabasca University, I read about the nomadic Fulbe women in Nigeria who learned by radio. I could understand their concerns with uninspired educational radio programs that did “not take into consideration the rhythm of . . . [their] lives” (Usman, 2001, p. 98). There was one tiny reference to a drama series, but as a scriptwriter and a woman interested in the power of storytelling as education, I was intrigued. The idea of serial drama as education was planted in my mind...
Hiv/aids, soap operas and young viewers: exploring the intersection of media effects and reception analysis and its implications for health communication  [cached]

Abstract: Con base en grupos focales y entrevistas a profundidad, este estudio analizó cómo televidentes jóvenes se relacionan con mensajes de salud centrados en vih/sida y sexualidad en dos telenovelas colombianas. Con base en datos cualitativos y en teorías como aprendizaje social, interacción parasocial, análisis de cultivación y estudios culturales, la investigación estudió los efectos de los mensajes a nivel de actitudes y comportamientos y la construcción de significados. Los resultados sugieren la existencia de algunos efectos entre los televidentes, pero también un proceso continuo de negociación y reinterpretación de mensajes. Los participantes, en forma alterna o simultánea, negocian significados de temas de salud y reportan cambios actitudinales y de comportamiento. Los resultados tienen implicaciones para investigadores y profesionales de la comunicación en salud, quienes a menudo ignoran la experiencia de recepción de medios y privilegian una mirada centrada en efectos de los mensajes.
