  • Searching for a Silver Lining: Mediated Intergroup Contact and Mental
           Health Perceptions

    • Authors: Kathryn L. Lookadoo, Norman C. H. Wong
      Pages: 1 - 13
      Abstract: This study investigated viewer responses to characters from Silver Linings Playbook, a movie about characters dealing with mental illness, from the perspective of mediated intergroup contact hypothesis. Researchers tested if identification with fictional characters with mental illness reduced viewers’ negative stereotypes about mental illness and increased their willingness to support people with the same illnesses as the characters. Additionally, empathy was tested as a mediator between identification and stereotype reduction. One hundred forty-five participants were randomly assigned to 1 of 3 character conditions. The hypotheses associated with identification and stereotypes and intentions were partially supported. For two characters, empathy mediated the relationship between identification and negative stereotypes. Implications for mediated portrayals of health issues and behaviors are discussed.

  • Fatima Al-Fihri Founder of the First World University

    • Authors: Fahira Fejzić-Čengić
      Pages: 14 - 20
      Abstract: The first modern university concept is made up of a set of simple and proven facts that are rarely studied at European Universities today, from Sarajevo to London. Simply they are just consciously suppressed. This makes the link from the mind disappeared unable to answer the question: how the mid-sluggish religious centuries-old period of Europe was awakened, stepping into a new age. Thus, the current islamophobia would be more easily overcome and people as mankind could more easily cooperate and settle in the beauty of life. Young women, and the founder Fatima Al-Fihri from the Karaouine, University in Africa, established curricula, degrees, diplomas, gown and tassels, and sent the first large volumes of translated books, scientific discoveries and insights for the establishment of early European universities such as Sorbonne, Bologna, Padua from Tunisia, Morocco, Africa, actually from the huge library of the Al Fihri University, University of Al-Karaouine. Can this truth be embedded into the curricula of modern university knowledge'

  • Corporate Aesthetics and Communication in the Urban Arts and Visual
           Culture of Kumasi

    • Authors: A. E. Asante, K. Opoku-Bonsu, A. K. Ebehiakeh
      Pages: 21 - 33
      Abstract: Kumasi is the capital city of the Asante Kingdom of Ghana. Being the seat of the throne of the Asantehene, the King of Asante’s, Kumasi is widely acknowledged as the major cultural city of Ghana. A study of the history of the people of Kumasi reveals that culture and art permeates their everyday life. Scholars have done some studies on the arts and economics of Asante and how it reflects their cultural life. However, a scholarly analysis of how corporate aesthetics is reflected in the urban art and visual culture of Kumasi has not been explored. In the bid to achieve this main objective, the paper discusses the corporate identities and cultural transformations in Kumasi, billboards, corporate commerce and savings, consuming visual culture and family finance and urban fantasies. The study is qualitative in nature and employs the descriptive method to provide an accurate description of specific urban arts in Kumasi.

  • Content Analysis of South African Sunday Newspaper Coverage of the Durban
           and Copenhagen Climate Change Conferences

    • Authors: Rendani Mulaudzi, Joseph Kioko
      Pages: 34 - 40
      Abstract: Since the first United Nations climate change conference in 1995, newspapers have been vital in increasing coverage of climate change. Amidst growing number of events around climate change, the influence of international climate change conferences in newspaper coverage of climate change has not been fully interrogated in post-apartheid South Africa. This study aims to discover how three major South African Sunday broadsheet newspapers represented the Copenhagen conference (COP15) in 2009 and the Durban conference (COP17) in 2011. It used a national sample for the years 2009 and 2011, covering the City Press, The Sunday Independent and Sunday Times. The study carried out quantitative analysis of 58 articles published in the three leading Sunday newspapers between 01 January and 31 December. The direct involvement of South Africa on the Copenhagen and Durban climate change negotiations had an influence in the level of newspaper coverage. The frequency of articles published per month increased in November and December for all the years of interest. The dominantly reported main topics associated with COP are greenhouse gas emissions and the Kyoto Protocol. Both COP15 and COP17 were discussed frequently at a local level - domestic geographical scope. Overall, the article identified that South African print media is not consistent in the representation of COP. In order to better the reporting of international climate talks, print media has to be actively involved in integrative and collaborative engagement with COP relevant stakeholders.
