Event Title

Framing the Frat Boy: An analysis of frames used in coverage of campus rape by The New York Times

Research Mentor(s)

Brian Bowe

Description

Inaccurate and problematic coverage influences how the public processes sexual violence. Frames that misrepresent sexual violence may result in the revictimization of the victim. This study adapted a previous study by searching for monster, playboy, virgin and whore frames in the manifest and latent content of The New York Times coverage of campus rape. The most common frame found in this study was the playboy frame. This study found that The New York Times coverage is far from perfect and could be adjusted to remove problematic frames from future coverage. Keywords: Campus rape, The New York Times, framing
