Published. Again.

I've been published again, with the help of my disseration adviser. We collaborated on an article about the coverage of Lynndie England in news and political magazines. Check out the abstract:

Hall (1980) argued that the media articulate non-necessary connections between messages and socially acceptable ideas. This research analyzes the process through which news magazines made a strong connection between Lynndie England and the Abu Ghraib prison scandal and how gender affected these articulations. By making England the symbol of the scandal, the media diverted attention away from broad issues and focused on an individual while reifying dichotomous images of women.

Check out the full article.
