Communication and Super-Saturation of the Modern Sense of Self "How does the design of information structure the information process? And how, on the other side of the equation, does the nature of audience engagement structure its reception? One person or medium speaks. Another individual or an audience of individuals receives the word or the message being conveyed. As with any performance, particularly a live performance, the method of transmission of the message conveyed invariably affects the message itself.

This is demonstrated in its most raw form during an improvised performance piece such as that of a stand-up comic. The comic realizes that he or she is not getting a favorable reception from the audience. They are yawning, or signaling to the waiter that they would like some new drinks. The comic takes stock of this information, realizing that he or she is…… [Read More].

The assassination of a Basque politician by the Basque separatist group ETA on the very eve of the election, March 7th, threatened to again confound public opinion of the relative merits of the two major candidates.

Powerful Connection Between Visuals and Words in. Before doing the research to write this essay, it never occurred to me place words in a hierarchy above images, so I confess to some surprise at the debate over which should be considered more important.

I began my research with the premise that the two are equal; different yes, but equal certainly. And nothing that I discovered in my survey of literature on the subject has changed my mind. The saying "A picture is worth a thousand words" sums up the debate over the relative importance of images vs. This statement was clearly made by someone who believes in the primacy of images. Based on my research, however, it would seem that proponents of the position that images are more important to communication than words appear to be in the minority.

Communication Skills to Give a Presentation it. Communication Skills to Give a Presentation It has recently been assigned that I will be responsible to present the quarterly sales information at an in-person meeting to a group of stakeholders, managers, sales people, and customers.

Before beginning the presentation, it is important to understand how to design the speech to be most effective to the audience. When preparing a speech, the speaker must be aware of their audience by understanding the way in which their audience listens.

There are four main types of listeners: Data, structure, vision, and human element. It is best to assume that every audience has each of the four main types of listeners, so the speaker must prepare the speech accordingly. The speaker should identify as to which is their strong point and use it as the core, but in order to capture the entire audience, it is best to adapt to each Brown, Visuals the First Image Appears.

This is known because at the center of the group is a large, upside down American flag being burned and the surrounding individuals cheering in support. Within this crowd are numerous cameras and video recorders capturing the flag burning, showing that the act is being done not for the individuals at the event but for the effect it will have on the individuals watching its portrayal through video, photos and news.

Memory and Culture visual media and how they shape our collective memory. Zelizer and food culture According to B. Zelizer's analysis of the book ealms of memory: In discussing the symbolic language of France, food plays an important role in the author's analysis. Food symbolizes collective aspects of the culture as well as personal aspects of nutrition. This can be seen in every nation. Cultural constructions affect personal tastes, and quite often what food symbolizes is equally important as how the food tastes.

Shaping collective memory According to Barbie Zelizer's review of the book ealms of memory, the simple question: The artifacts chronicled by the author of the book are simple, yet complex enough to sustain the reader's attention. The work Zelizer is reviewing is divided into three sections: Certain visual themes, including food and competitive bicycling, run throughout all three works, given the significance they have in French culture.

Within America, other visual themes in history have similar symbolic significance and embody all three aspects of visual history -- conflicts, traditions, and symbols.

Although interpersonal and group level communications reside at a lower level than organizational communication, they are major forms of communication in organizations and are prominently addressed in the organizational communication literature. Recently, as organizations became more communication-based, greater attention was directed at improving the interpersonal communication skills of all organizational members. Historically, informal communication was primarily seen as a potential block to effective organizational performance.

This is no longer the case is modern times, as on-going, dynamic, and informal communication has become more important to ensuring the effective conduct of work It is also widely accepted that top managers should communicate directly with immediate supervisors and that immediate supervisors should communicate with their direct reports.

They act, therefore, as a substitute for non-verbal communication in face-to-face speech. It has been found that emoticons are generally outweighed by the verbal component of the communication. Further research has showed that the most important communicative value of emoticons are as a means of communication not emotions, but context. I have found that the latter tends to be true. Emoticons are used by myself in outbound communications mainly in situations where there may be interpretation issues with the text.

The communication message that companies send to their targeted customer segments can significantly influence the number of customers they attract.

Where, it would encourage all youth in Western Australia to show up at Cronuella each, in an effort to protect the beach and women. This is significant, because it shows how the use of heated SMS messages could help to enrage both groups. As this form of written communication would increase the overall amounts of rage that the two side were feeling towards each other.

Visual languages were used to help increase the overall negative opinions that many Australians would feel towards the Arabs.

This is important in the history of communication because it marks the first time humans left a recorded form of communication.

Also, these written symbols became the ultimate source of later alphabets. Cave paintings at Lascaux show early representational art. This is important in the history of communication because the caves depict over figures, including abstract symbols. More recent research suggests these may record astronomical information. First surviving umerian pictograms demonstrate a primitive form of record keeping.

The first is represented by a higher degree of centralization of all important information collected throughout the process of researching the secondary sources of information. This process is necessary as it offers the first valuable insights into the opportunities and other features of the Malaysian market, but also because it raises the questions for the research to be completed from the primary sources.

Integrated Corporate Communication and Corporate. Corporate communications involves not just the message, but the idea that communications are managed, and are connected to corporate objectives Cornelissen, Therefore, when communication possibilities were limited, corporate options were limited, and one did not see communications management perspectives that advocated the type of intimate connection between communications and corporate strategy that one sees in a modern context Cornelissen, What this makes clear is that CC is not simply, or even primarily, about communications; it is an overall corporate strategy that helps define how a corporation interacts with the world.

The emphasis on communication is very different from how corporations were traditionally, historically structured. Traditionally, strategic planning occurred at the top of the corporate structure, management was considered a mid-level activity, and operational control was the function of first-level management, and this corporate strategy was used in most workplaces Oliver, However, as institutional hierarchies were challenged and…… [Read More].

Journal of Marketing Management, 26 , Literacy, Learning and Media. Quarterly for Education and Technology, 9, What differs, however, are the elements that are worth looking for in such material, as well as the ways to document them. Moving images add two important new elements to the communication process.

The first is time: The second element is sound: In other words, film combines several modes of communication: The most common kind is the shot protocol, which is essentially a reverse-engineered story board. The shot protocol is a table that lists every separate camera shot, in chronological order. You can easily create such a table in Excel or Numbers. Each line is reserved for a shot, and the various columns allow you to capture all the data that you need. Below is a section of a shot protocol that I created for the analysis of a Chinese television drama.

As you can see, the table contains the shot number, a screen-shot, the length of the shot, a short-hand notation on the angle and the camera actions e. An advantage of this kind of shot protocol is that it captures how different elements work together in a dynamic sequence of images.

For instance, the shot length helps highlights where the emphasis might lie in a sequence of shots, and what elements interact in that moment. Here, shot 78 is a particularly lengthy shot that concludes a series of fast-past shots. The narrative arc culminates with a character breaking down in violent sobs in front of his emperor.

The emotional force of the scene is an outcome of visual and acoustic construction that the protocol helps depict and explore. In this particular case, the protocol is part of a larger analysis that shows how this Chinese TV programme makes highly political and ultimately very conservative statements on what it means to be a good ruler cf.

Not all moving images are best summarized in a shot protocol. If you are not interested in the detailed dynamics of a scene, but want to capture the overall narrative arcs and patterns in a lengthy film, then a better choice might be to create a sequence protocol. The idea behind a sequence protocol is the same as for the shot protocol: I use sequence protocols to divide films and theatrical performances into narrative elements that I can then code for certain discourses. I can then later find all sections of the visual material that, for example, are set in a specific location, contain a specific character, use a particular piece of music, or deal with a specific subject matter.

Also, the protocol can again help highlight patterns in the material. The sequence protocol showed that the documentary repeatedly deployed the same general set-up to convey its highly ideological narrative. It combined special effects, images of historical artefacts, carefully edited expert interviews, and selected film scenes to suggest a high degree of factuality, all the while imbuing the account with a strong sense of pathos.

Protocols can also help capture visual communication processes that are even more complex than film, such as museums, parades, political rallies, and so on. In such cases, there are often additional dimensions to the communication process which deserve being analysed. This is where you will need to be creative. Alternatively, a decision-tree could highlight how visitors can move through the exhibits. The method of analysis will again depend on the kind of question you have.

The trick for such an analysis is to find a way to connect the different bits of your data in a way that allows you to explore different dimensions of your case to see what logic applies and what patterns emerge. There are various tools that make it possible to relate diverse research materials to one-another. However, if your university does not offer this programme or a similar one, then you can still fall back on one of the many free tool that are available online. I can recommend the browser-based software Prezi.

While Prezi is designed primarily for presentations, it can also be re-appropriated for research purposes. Prezi is essentially a large, visually oriented mind-mapping tool. You can upload various bits of data, such as individual images, pdf versions of protocols, etc, and then arrange these elements on an empty canvas. You could, for instance, start with a 2D map of a theme park and then add photos of each ride or exhibit to that map.

You may need to conduct any quantitative research separately for instance if you wanted to calculate the floor-space of the different exhibits , but Prezi nevertheless offers a convenient way to arrange your data. What is more, after you have concluded your analysis, you can use the same canvas in your presentations. As the example of Prezi already suggests, your research presentation will ultimately be well served if you are able to showcase your materials.

After all, showing your audience the images that you are discussing is a compelling way to demonstrate your case.

The same is true for the tools you use to analyse images. It is also a visual representation of your research, which makes it a powerful part of your argument. However, this is also where the risk lies.

Visualizing your data is not a trivial process. Similarly, if I condense a complex process into a simplified visual representation that misleadingly emphasises the wrong elements, then I am doing violence to my data. In the best of cases, I am only doing a poor job. In the worst of cases, I am producing ideology rather than research. The important thing to remember is that any kind of research presentation is always also an argument.

A written account of a historical event or a mathematical calculation of an economic process can be just as misleading and manipulative as the visual examples I offer above. So what separates a good research account from a bad one? I believe the answer is honesty and clarity. If you are transparent about your research process, about the assumptions that informed your approach, and about the limitations of your tools, then you are already guarding yourself against temptations to misrepresent your own work.

If you are able to then communicate your results clearly, in ways that allow others to look at your work, understand what it is you did, and reproduce your results or refute them , then a visual rendition of your work is no less worthy of scholarly attention than any academic monograph.
