The Questions
  • What is the relationship of teens and the media?
  • Why is media so important in the everyday
    routines of adolescents
  • What do they take from the media

3
Concerns
  • The effect of mass media on As
  • Harmful messages
  • Unhealthy behavior (early or unprotected sex/drug
    use)

4
The Research/Fieldwork
  • All the research done was qualitative
  • sex and relationships and how they are influenced
    by media (19 white middle class girls) 1987
  • Recorded tours of As rooms (6 teens, multi
    race/gender) 1991,1992
  • Interview each other on room contents and
    importance (20 H.S. seniors) 1992
  • Alcohol in media, As kept journal of alcohol use
    (5 college students) 1993

5
Developing a Media Practice Model
  • Practice perspective
  • Lived experience
  • Identity formation

6
Developing a Media Practice Model
  • Practice perspective - Everyday activities and
    media consumption
  • Lived experience - Development stage,
  • socio-cultural, relationships (family/friends)
  • Identity formation central task of adolescence,
    a sense of who they are shapes media use

7
The Media Practice Model
8
Media Components
  • Selection - teens make choices (conscious/unconsci
    ous)
  • Ex. First group of girls interview about
    sexuality
  • Their room decoration and media use correlated to
    beliefs
  • The girls were categorized into three groups

9
  • Disinterested few to none sexual images in room
  • Intrigued many main stream sexual images in
    room
  • Resisters same media access as intrigued, but
    less main stream images. Also they tend to be
    more physically mature and sexually experienced

10
Interaction
  • Identifying with characters and songs call on
    media for certain purposes or goals
  • Interpreting and applying to their lives
  • see harms/unrealistic standards
  • still buys into the culture and consumerism

11
Application Why use media?
  • To enhance mood
  • Sort through cultural values/norms
  • Make statements about identity
  • Emulate admired behavior
  • Fantasize about possible selves/situations

12
Application cont. Incorporation (internal
application)
  • Framing - through what perspective the adolescent
    sees the media
  • Cultivation active search for media to
    reinforce beliefs
  • Emotional Conditioning association/memory
  • Ex. Girl hears song

13
Conclusion
  • Selection
  • Interaction
  • Application
  • Identity

14
Strengths and Weaknesses of the study
  • Qualitative research shows details for a small
    sample, but these findings do not apply to the
    general adolescent population.
  • The self report data is a great way into the mind
    of the subject. On the other hand, the subject
    may skew their entries to escape embarrassment or
    reveal insecurities.
  • The study does not follow drastic media exposure
    over time and show the possible repercussions.
  • The studies were not recently conducted (87-92)
  • A strength of the study would be that the Media
    Practice Model can be applied to all adolescents,
    as it focuses on identity formation.

15
Questions
  • Explain how girls may select media content
    differently depending on whether they are
    Disinterested, Intrigued, or Resisters. Do
    you think similar categories exist for boys?
  • Think about your current room. Are there any
    significant changes of media representation from
    your room in H.S.? If yes, why do you think these
    adjustments occurred?
