New Issue: Journal of Children and Media

With my comprehensive exams a mere couple of weeks away, I have less than no time for any additional reading...of course, now would have to be the time when all these great journals are coming out with their most recent issues. Anyway, that's my problem. For the rest of you, make sure to check out the most recent issue of the Journal of Children and Media, for lots of good stuff of girls' culture and child-TV-family dynamics. Here's the table of contents:
Sharon R. Mazzarella and Norma Pecora: "Revisiting Girls' Studies: Girls creating sites for connection and action."

Mary Celeste Kearney: "Productive Spaces: Girls' bedrooms as sites of cultural production."

Mark A. Callister, Tom Robinson and Bradley R. Clark: "Media Portrayals of the Family in Children's Television Programming During the 2005-2006 Season in the US."

Dina L. G. Borzekowski and Thomas N. Robinson: "Conversations, Control, adn Couch-Time: The assessment and stability of parental mediation styles and children's TV and video viewing."

Moniek Buijzen and Claartje Mens: "Adults Mediation of Television Advertising Effects: A comparison of factual, evaluative, and combined strategies."

Milton Chen: "Training the Eye: Expanding the "language arts" with the grammar of film."

Also, be sure to peruse the issue's two reviews, one on the recent Fifth World Summit on Media for Children (which took place in Johannesburg, South Africa in March), and one on David Williamson Shaffer's book How Computer Games Help Children Learn.
