ItemDialogic Learning as First Principle in Communication Ethics(Atlantic Journal of Communication, 2010-07) Arnett, Ronald C.; Bell, Leeanne M.; Fritz, Janie M. Harden; School of Design; Business CommunicationThis article frames a dialogic learning theory of communication ethics based upon Buber (1955, 1958), Gadamer (1988), Freire (2000), and Arendt (1998). This communication ethics theory privileges dialogic learning as first principle, accompanied by attending and listening as one searches for temporal answers emerging among three coordinates: (a) communicative partners (self and Other), (b) communicative content, and (c) the communicative demands of the historical moment. We situate a communication ethic within a philosophical and pragmatic first principle: dialogic learning (Arnett, Fritz, & Bell, 2009), working within the tradition of Levinas (2001) that ethics is first philosophy and first principle (Bergo, 1999). [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR] ItemMoms & Meds: Navigating Pregnancy and Psychiatric Medication(Janson Media, Alexander Street Press, 2015) Fiasconaro, Dina; Cullen, Lucas; Brooks, Brian II; Chaney, Corey; Johnston, Craig; Cipriano, Joe; School of Design; Film & Moving ImageMoms & Meds: Navigating Pregnancy and Psychiatric Medication is a feature documentary film that explores the options women face when they want to have children, but take psychotropic medication for mental illness. The film follows multiple women who are dealing with this issue. Other interviewees include doctors, advocates and family members who influence, and are affected by, these decisions. The film focuses on the personal stories of the women, and the many facets, both positive and negative, of making such decisions. It addresses the struggle and emotional turmoil, as well as the hope and perseverance of the featured women, and advocates for their ability to make the best individual and personal choices for themselves and their families. ItemCasaway(2018) Guit, Hailey; Nyarady, Hope; Glaser, Rivka L.; Marx, Meghan A.; Graphic Design; GDES-310 Graphic Design IIIAs designer, people might think that I just make visuals out of fonts and images, but it’s so much more than that. To be the best designer as possible I need to become an expert on what I’m designing to understand the symbolism or context I need to design for. Sometimes this is simple, like doing a bit of online searching or library research, other times a lot more is required. Like In a Communication Design class (GDES310) when the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) is your client and asks you to make a game for middle school students based on the scientific process of DNA editing called CRISPR. This projects required research of threefold. First I need to know and fully understand what CRISPR is and how it works. Second I need to understand my audience, which wasn’t just middle schoolers even though they were the users of my game, teachers and parents also played a significant part of my audience as well. Finally, I needed to understand game design, and how to make a game that isn’t just playable and fun, but also educational. I had so much to learn and the research I had to conduct took multiple forms in order to be the most useful to the development of my project. ItemQueen Phiona and Princess Shuri—Alternative Africana "Royalty" in Disney’s Royal Realm: An Intersectional Analysis(Social Sciences, 2018-10-20) Harris, Heather E.; Stevenson University School of Design; Business CommunicationThis paper explores the representations of two of Disney’s Africana royals, Phiona from the Queen of Katwe and Princess Shuri from Black Panther. Taking into consideration the pedagogical impact of media to reinforce ideologies of White supremacy and privilege, the depictions of these alternative royals in Disney’s royal realm are analyzed using intersectionality theory. The girls’ intersecting identities are juxtaposed with Collins’ matrix of domination concept. The analysis revealed that, while both Phiona and Shuri are challenged by the legacy of colonialization, capitalism, and globalization that constitute the matrix of domination, their approaches to these challenges are different as a result of the unique ways that their identities intersect. The author stresses that while it is commendable of Disney, and Hollywood, to allow for the affirming portrayals of these Africana girls on screen, the gesture is baseless unless a tipping point is reached where such films, and those depicting other non-dominant groups, become the norm rather than the exceptions. In other words, the challenge for those in the industry is not to resist the matrix of domination that stymies the creation of films that reflect the spectrum of the lived and fantastical experiences of Africana, and people of color; rather, the challenge is to dismantle it.
