Media Panel: A Presentation of a Program. Report No. 4
Rosengren, Karl Erik; Windahl, Swen
Media Panel is a research program directed toward media habits, causes and effects of TV use among children and adolescents, and viewer/media interaction in general. Results of this longitudinal study from 1970 to the present are presented in three sections focusing on the early work of the group, the preschool panel, and the primary school panel. The final goals of the project are to describe: (1) how TV enters the life of the preschool child, how it becomes a dominant factor, and how its importance is then reduced; (2) the relative importance of generational and maturational effects on the above process; (3) the possible consequences of TV on children's self image, job preferences, tendency to stereotype, and their image of society; and (4) the role of TV and other mass media as functional alternatives to and compensatory mechanisms for, satisfactory social relations. A list of references is attached. (JVP)
