  • Issue 84 - Penetration and Power
    • Abstract: McKee, Alan This paper analyses the ways in which it is possible to imagine the relationship between sexual penetration and the expression of power. Taking the particular instance of a penetrative act in the US gay porn film Hard at Work, it applies a series of critical approaches in an attempt to make sense of perceived power relations in that text, Equations of power and activity, power and physical strength, power and the possession of a penis, power and the ability to gaze and power and the control of discourse are all considered and found to be inadequate to the task. The paper finally suggests that in order to usefully discuss relations of power in sexual acts, it is necessary to accept the radical reconceptualisation of power suggested by Mark Gibson, and begin to understand it not as an objective, measurable and real quantity, but as an effect of the interpretation of particular situations.

  • Issue 84 - Homie-Erotica: Heterosexual Female Desire in the Picture
    • Abstract: Albury, Katherine Desiring women have often been read by both psychoanalysis and feminism as 'whores', who are paradoxically masculine; whether this masculinity is read psychoanalytically as identification with men, or politically as collusion. Using the specific example of amateur porn models, the 'Home Girls' who send in images of themselves to 'The Picture', this paper explores the ways in which (classed) theoretical understandings of female desire are confounded or defied by desiring practices.

  • Issue 84 - Not Really Desiring Bodies: The Rise and Rise of Email Affairs
    • Abstract: Stratton, Jon In the last couple of years there has developed a general fascination with email affairs, affairs that take place using the Internet. In this article I discuss email affairs in the context of a historical argument that, particularly since the mid 1980s, people in Western society have started to accept the idea of having non-bodily relationships, and non-bodily sex. I trace this history to the gradual acceptance of phone-sex. The article concentrates on the idea that the assumption that there should be a transition from non-bodily interaction to bodily interaction is false. Virtual relationships, and virtual sex, are of a different kind from bodily relationships and bodily sex.

  • Issue 84 - Babes on the Web: Sex, Identity and the Home Page
    • Abstract: Kibby, Marj Robert Toups' Babes on the Web pages list women's Web pages that contain a photograph, each rated on the basis of the image on a scale of one to four, 'babe-o-rama to dog-o-matic'. Babes on the Web raises questions on the construction of identity through the home page, in particular the social tools for the production of identity, and the extent to which it is possible, or desirable, to dispense with the gendered body. An analysis of women's home pages shows that while on one level the body may be dispensable in the construction of identity in cyberspace, the self is still warranted by the gendered, sexed, body at the keyboard; a body that it might not be in women's interests to dispense with.

  • Issue 84 - Techno-textuality: Representations of Femininity and Sexuality
    • Abstract: Luke, Carmen; Luke, Haida This paper takes a cyberfeminist position to explore constructs of femininity and sexuality as they are appropriated by and yet elide the discourses of masculinist techno-culture. Using the tools of feminist cultural studies, the authors explore how femininity and sexuality are being textually mediated and culturally recoded into emergent discourses about IT and cyberspace in the 'traditional' textual genre of popular magazines. The specific focus is on the discursive and semiotic representation of femininity, sexuality, and women as technology users in women's lifestyle, Internet, and computing magazines. II is argued that despite the overwhelming presence of male culture and male-authored cyber-speak in popular representations on techno-culture and cyberspace, there are many affirming representations of femininity, feminine sexuality, and women in IT discourses that speak to and for a new generation of technologically competent and wired women.

  • Issue 84 - Sex Acts: Coverage of a Sex Debate by Australian Chinese
           Community Media
    • Abstract: Zhong, Yong Intra-ethnic sexual/conjugal relationships are the norm in the Australian Chinese community where women's sexual pleasure has traditionally been repressed. But recently a Sydney-based Chinese woman writer initiated a subversive debate and broke the taboos by targeting the alleged sexual (under-)performance of Chinese men and advocating sexual relationships with Western men. This paper examines the two opposing discourses of the debate, focusing on how the subverter constructed a discourse which turned sexual preference into a political issue in order to bargain for power in sexual relationships while the opposition constructed a hegemonic discourse by ostracising the subverter as a deviant, sick woman and an ethnic traitor. There is also a brief discussion of how the discursive acts of the debate performatively constituted the positions of the debaters in sex politics. The paper concludes with a brief discussion of why the debate failed to explore gender issues in greater depth.

  • Issue 84 - Staging Sex: Carlotta, the Boy from Balmain
    • Abstract: Brooks, Karen; Scott, Sally This paper explores the media fascination with cross-dressing and transsexuality as evidenced in a recent 60 Minutes Story by Charles Wooley about Carlotta (a well-known Sydney transsexual), and her travelling show of transsexuals. Carlotta Presents, My Beautiful Boys. This story exposed the discomfort that commercial television can experience when dealing with transgendered subjects. Throughout the interview, Wooley attempted to return to Carlotta the figurative phallus that, when she was a man (Ricky MacDermott), s/he had so willingly abandoned. Despite these efforts to normalise her, Carlotta and her transgendered 'boys' were inscribed as liminal and therefore disruptive figures.

  • Issue 84 - Meadows or Minefields': Underneath the Surface of the
           Mansfield Report
    • Abstract: Steel, Alex The overall tone of the Mansfield report supports the ABC's current role and functions and urges it to continue to have a broad based and innovative future. However the detail of the report does not support such a future due to both a lack of credible financial costings and ill-considered changes to the ABC's charter. The report concentrates on the ABC's current role and fails provide a future direction for public broadcasting.

  • Issue 84 - The Mansfield Vision for the ABC
    • Abstract: Davis, Glyn The Mansfield report has surprised many with its modest recommendations and strong commitment to the existing ABC. The report supports ABC plans for a new integrated organisational structure, seeks additional funding for digital technology acquisition, and urges the return of triennial funding. Mansfield provides little comfort to any Cabinet minister seeking more spending cuts. For such advice the government must look to an alternative report from the National Commission of Audit. While Mansfield suggests contracting out some television production, the NCA offers a far more radical vision for private delivery of Australian public broadcasting.

  • Issue 84 - International Broadcasting: The Reluctant ABC
    • Abstract: Hodge, Errol The ABC, desperate to meet the government's direction to slash its budget by $55 million next financial year, has seized on the recommendations in the 'Mansfield report that it stop international sound broadcasting and sell off its international television service. The ABC hopes to pocket Radio Australia's budget of more than $20 million, and Australia Television's budget of more than $6 million. But the recommendations have brought a storm of protest from many quarters, and a Senate committee is inquiring into the role and future of RA and ATV. Some in Australia have suggested that shortwave broadcasting is passe. But the BBC World Service, the Voice of America and Radio France Internationale are spending millions on new shortwave services, and Radio China International has bought new shortwave transmitters to strengthen its output.

  • Issue 84 - Distorting Images, Invisible Images: Gender, Disability and the
           Media
    • Abstract: Meekosha, Helen; Dowse, Leanne representations of disabled people in the media are increasingly being interrogated as the disability rights movement gains momentum. Calls for more 'realistic' portrayals of disabled people prevail yet media studies have devoted scant attention to any analysis of this phenomenon. Even less attention has been accorded to portrayals of women with disabilities. Currently, feminist critiques of the media lack the ability to explain both the stereotyped images and the invisibility of women with disabilities. Yet the role of the media in Socially constructing and eroticising the female body is relevant to women with disabilities. Common media representations of women with disabilities are narrow: limited by their biology, as subordinate beings and as victims, as the subject of medical discourses and in dependent roles - where they are often waiting to be rescued by an able-bodied male or the caring public. The media has an important role to play in reporting struggles by women with disabilities for equal rights as well as more diverse and critical representations of their lived experiences.

  • Issue 84 - The Public/Private Divide: Regulating the Media
    • Abstract: Slade, Christina The shifting sands of regulation, tied as they are to the boundaries of the public and private, are influenced not only by the impact of technological change and the pressures of globalisation but also by the domestic and regional cultural attitudes to the divide between what is 'public' and what 'private'. The focus of this paper is not public policy, nor economic theory nor even communications law - all of which the title might reasonably suggest - but rather a conceptual analysis of how the public/private divide underpins our attitudes towards regulation. I begin with a general discussion of the spatial metaphors which structure our thinking about the public/ private divide. I then turn to a particular case of cultural difference in constructing that divide, based on earlier work on Taiwanese cable television.

    • Abstract: Pearson, Mark This article analyses postings over a week-long period to two electronic discussion lists to position them as communication forms and to assess their potential value to journalism educators, students and researchers. The lists - Journet and Stumedia - feature advantages including networking and scholarly cooperation, knowledge acquisition, a sense of communion, and an opportunity to keep pace with innovation. Disadvantages are the sheer bulk of correspondence, low participation rates, maleness, US-centricity and the preponderance of 'junk mail'.

  • Issue 84 - Nutritional Supplement Advertising: Representations of Science
           and Nature
    • Abstract: Riedlinger, Michelle; Pittam, Jeffrey In this paper we examine representations of science and nature in current Australian print advertising of nutritional supplements. Fifty-three advertisements from health magazines and pamphlets - the major forms of print advertising of these products - were analysed. As with earlier studies of advertising, nature is represented as inherently 'good'. However, unlike earlier studies, science is no longer shown to be controlling nature but complementary to it. Although science is represented in the majority of these advertisements, the synthetic nature of nutritional supplements remains hidden, and production processes remain unarticulated. This is achieved by fusing processes and outcomes in vague terminology; the justification of content and effectiveness through reference to the authority of science; and the linking of science and nature. The last is manifested in emphasising the association with 'natural' ingredients, and indirectly through links with the past, both by appealing to past indigenous cultures and the inadequacy of the modern lifestyle compared to the past.

  • Issue 85 - Moral Panic: The Legacy of Stan Cohen and Stuart Hall
    • Abstract: Jones, Paul This article assesses the legacy of Stan Cohen's moral panic thesis in the context of its debt to the discipline of sociology and its appropriation and transformation by Stuart Hall, especially in the relatively neglected major work, Policing the Crisis. This is shown to be a significant, if flawed, paradigmatic legacy for contemporary media and cultural studies where Hall's influence in particular remains remarkably strong. Despite their considerable innovations, Cohen and Hall are found to have reproduced elements of the functionalism of their sources. The article concludes with a consideration of some recent commentators' revisions which may enable a less compromised articulation of this paradigm.

  • Issue 85 - The Bulletin and the Larrikin: Moral Panic in the Late
           Nineteenth Century Sydney
    • Abstract: Morgan, George In the late nineteenth century the disorderly behaviour of young people on the streets of Sydney provoked outrage among the city's middle class residents. The Bulletin was an organ of emergent radical nationalism which celebrated the irreverence and roughness of the bush pioneers. Its attitude to urban larrikinism was, however, little different from that of the conservative press. Editorials frequently expressed alarm at the decline in law and order and called for more intensive policing of the city streets. This article views the moral panic around larrikinism through the pages of the Bulletin and argues that there was a shift from a generalised concern about urban disorder to the construction of a sinister stereotypical figure of the larrikin, who haunted the slum quarters and whose behaviour threatened the well-being of the nation.

  • Issue 85 - Panic in the Streets: Home, Homelessness and Public Spaces
    • Abstract: Allon, Fiona; Martin, Jeannie This paper explores a media-escalated panic about homelessness in Australia in light of Cohen's work on moral panics. In dialogue with Cohen, the paper locates panic in the ground of collective fear, and in a family of panics about boundaries, home and public space, especially streets. Our thesis is that the mass media short circuits diffuse fears and, in communicative dialogue with other social fields implicated in the life of a panic, stages diffuse fear as a moral panic. The virtual aspect of each stage of the panic is explored.

  • Issue 85 - Moral Panic or Moral Action': The Appropriation of Moral
           Panics in the Exercise of Social Control
    • Abstract: Horsfield, Peter Cohen's early work on moral panics has been influential, not necessarily through direct knowledge of his work, but through correspondence of the concept with a widely-held view of media effect and through the concept's usefulness in explaining particular forms of social action. The public reaction to the first widespread publicity given to the issue of sexual abuse by clergy in 1992 fits Cohen's description of a moral panic. But a study of that case, the social situation that surrounded it, and subsequent events, raise questions about aspects of Cohen's model and highlight particular political uses which can be made of the model in situations of social resistance or political suppression.

  • Issue 85 - Panic Attacks: Old Fears in a New Media Era
    • Abstract: Lumby, Catharine The following paper considers the origin of the use of the term moral panic in media and cultural studies and at how it constructs its object of critical concern. The paper argues that, while the term moral panic reinstitutes the very 'us'/'them' dichotomy it seeks to unpack, it is nonetheless a useful concept for thinking about sites of productive social anxiety. The latter argument is explored in relation to two contemporary areas of collective concern: debates about authenticity and authorial identity and debates about children, sex and the internet.

  • Issue 85 - The Paedophile as 'Folk Devil'
    • Abstract: Redfern, Lea Recent articulations emerging from the media unequivocally position paedophilia as a contemporary moral panic. Concurrently, a continuing collapse of 'the paedophile' and 'the homosexual' in representations of paedophilia operates to reinforce the construction of paedophilia as occurring outside of the home and family. By applying a Foucauldian analysis to articles in the Sydney Morning Herald, this paper problemarises the construction of the paedophile as a 'personage, a past, a case history and a childhood' and excoriates the discourses which construct the paedophile as the folk devil par excellence.

    • Abstract: Evans, Mark; Butkus, Clarice M This article examines the manifestation of moral panic around pornography on the Internet. It seeks to detail the panic as it unfolded through the traditional media, comparing and contrasting that to panic on the Internet itself. Through primary research the paper reveals the extent to which pornography is readily available on the Internet, and who can gain access to it. The paper concludes by investigating the repercussions for social policy in Australia as a direct result of 'cyberporn panic'.

  • Issue 85 - Panic at the Port
    • Abstract: Stockwell, Stephen Media treatment of the Port Arthur massacre fits comfortably into Cohen's (1973) general schema of moral panic but, as the perpetrator's motivation was probed in the inventory and reaction stages, some thematic elements of that panic were stretched (such as gun availability and video violence) while others were cut short (the perpetrator's personal development and racism). Delineating the context of these editorial decisions reveals a shift in the function of moral panic from the socially constructed media event chronicled by Cohen to the hegemonically deployed media instrument symptomatic of the contemporary media environment. Nevertheless the simultaneous shift in the site of moral panic deconstruction from class-based sociology to audience-based media theory suggests trajectories for the subversive use of moral panic. Thus the article per se begins: On Sunday 28 April 1996, Martin Bryant murdered 35 people at Port Arthur, Tasmania and in surrounding districts.

  • Issue 85 - Technophobia: Video Games, Computer Hacks and Cybernetics
    • Abstract: Marshall, PDavid There is a general anxiety in contemporary culture that circulates around the adoption of new technology. This paper identifies the intergenerational fears that have developed around computer-mediated culture in order to illuminate how the integration of the computer has become the site for concerns about the economic viability of the current middle class. Two types of fears are discussed: the fear of waste, where the new information economy may be missed by the next generation in their focus on new forms of pleasures through games; and the fear of knowledge, where the type of knowledge gained produces an out-of-control hacker subculture that cannot be surveilled or contained by an older generation. These fears of succession are most readily visible in male adolescent culture, (which has working class construction of pleasure with overly simplified militaristic norms) and the computer hacker culture (computer expertise in positive feedback loops that don't respond to social restraint).

  • Issue 85 - Generating X: Lifestyle Panics and the New Generation Gap
    • Abstract: Sternberg, Jason Using a wide range of private sources such as market research and public media texts including news reports, advertisements and popular sociology, this paper examines the popular construction of the Generation X phenomenon and what has been termed 'the new generation gap'. In doing so, the paper will argue that Generation X's construction represents a highly contradictory, but nonetheless highly powerful version of the traditional moral panic; a 'lifestyle panic'. The lifestyle panic differs from the moral panic in that rather than attempting to police one particular deviant behaviour or a collection of deviant behaviours perpetrated by a group, it attempts to discipline the group as a whole, thereby bringing about a re-definition of its conditions of existence. In the case of Generation X, this re-definition is inevitably in market terms and through nostalgic constructions of youth culture.

  • Issue 85 - Screenwriting, Screen Teaching
    • Abstract: Williamson, Dugald This article considers the teaching of screenwriting in the light of questions surrounding screen production courses In universities. It considers the role of such courses in the context of their still-forming relationships with industry and the relative lack of debate about their academic functions. By evaluating one main type of resource for screenwriting - namely, manuals based on a conflict-based methodology - the article argues the need to expand the definition of screenwriting. Combining these formulaic guides with wider reading and research enables students to consider the cultural values and limits of the forms they use and, in so doing, develop a range of intellectual, creative and social skills. Using its analysis of screenwriting techniques as the basis for a pedagogic rationale, the article argues that screen production teaching represents a significant reworking of relations between academic and vocational education in universities.

  • Issue 85 - Add One Writer and Stir: Recipe or Feast'
    • Abstract: Castrique, Sue In 1995 I was granted a Script Editing Fellowship by the Australian Film Commission as part of its distinctively Australian program. I attached myself to Keith Thompson, script writer and editor. It was Keith who sparked a debate within the Australian Writer's Guild about 'craft' and it was because he did that I sought him out. By different routes we had both come to feel that 'craft' had become a new orthodoxy but along the way, by becoming codified into an industry bible, something equally important had been lost. This popular version of 'craft' seemed to have precariously little to do with the practice and art of writing as we knew it. Besides, what we wanted to ask was something different. How do you encourage innovative, non-narrative and adventurous scriptwriting'

    • Abstract: Bailey, Julie James This article describes how country picture theatres operated until the coming of television. It examines how the Hollywood distribution companies organised and dominated hundreds of far-flung theatres in remote Australia and protected their films from competition by a system of zoning and clearances which still exists today. An analysis of contracts, cash books, ledgers and diaries from theatres in two towns 1000kms from Brisbane - the Radio Theatre Barcaldine and the six theatres in the seaside town of Mackay - shows how the film industry laid the groundwork for the structure of television, which quickly became dependent on the US distributors, demanded protection from competition for exhibitors (TV stations), and wanted no restriction on ownership (networking).
