This book brings ethnicities into focus by presenting contemporary ethnic discourses that capture and highlight disjuncture within the concept of the idealized “globalizing” world.
In recent years and despite many writings about globalization and the melding of differences, there remain strong forces that continue to exacerbate ethnic differences in communication as well as other important areas. This volume addresses this phenomenon through research-based investigation of ethnic and racial issues and covers topics such as health issues, networks, media, and coping. It captures key ethnicities including a growing Hispanic population, native Americans, Middle Easterners, and Asian Americans. This book explores various topics including how ethnicity is defined in communication scholarship, how Twitter has facilitated MMIW (Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women) cyber activism by cultivating collective indigenous identity, and media framing of Latin American players in Major League Baseball in the United States and offers online experiment and content analysis using 185 participants of different races/ethnicities to examine bonding capital in coping and seeking support.
Ethnicities: Media, Health, and Coping will be a key resource for scholars and researchers of communication studies, race and ethnic studies, media and cultural studies, and sociology, while also appealing to anyone interested in the research-based investigation of the communicative aspects of ethnic and racial issues. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Howard Journal of Communications.
