March 31, 2019 Lexington Books 978-1498550581

"Patrice A. Oppliger’s Tweencom Girls: Gender and Adolescence in Disney and Nickelodeon Sitcoms offers an insightful and vivid exploration of characters and themes found in popular tween comedies. Such an in-depth look at the tweencom genre is long overdue. The arguments are rich, and the examples are abundant and deep. Oppliger’s read of female stereotypes and girl power stretches beyond princess culture and provides fresh constructions of key tropes and themes."  Nancy Jennings, University of Cincinnati

The Silent Soldier and the Portrait

December 1, 2018 Incandescent Media

But no summary of what happened at Marikana can do justice to Marinovich’s narrative, nor to the miners, police and security guards who lost their lives while authorities created ‘plausible deniability’ for themselves.” Anthony Egan, Daily Maverick

It includes chapters on the theoretical and methodological foundations of this third level of agenda-setting research by two former students of Maxwell McCombs, as well as case studies using this new approach in political communication and public relations by a wide range of scholars from the U.S. and other countries. It is essential and thought-provoking reading for those interested in agenda-setting research.” — David H. Weaver, Indiana University

Image and Emotion in Voter Decisions: The Affect Agenda

March 25, 2015 Lexington Books 978-0739189955

“This is an important addition to the agenda-setting and voting literature in several respects. It brings various theories of information processing to bear on agenda-setting research, and it emphasizes the role of visual content in agenda-setting effects. It also analyzes the relative strength of first- and second-level agenda-setting effects on voting behavior in one Taiwanese and four U.S. presidential elections. As such, this program of work represents probably the only longitudinal effort so far to examine visuals for their second-level agenda setting effects.” — David H. Weaver, Indiana University
