News from ICCVOS, v5 n1 2001
This document represents the only issue of UNESCO International Clearinghouse on Children and Violence on the Screen's newsletter published in 2001. The report describes research findings concerning children and media violence, children's media use, and activities aimed at limiting gratuitous media violence. One article summarizes three workshops held at a European Commission Expert Seminar dealing with protecting minors from harmful content on the Internet and in video and computer games, protecting minors from harmful content in the television environment, and creating a "fair play" situation in television advertising directed at children. Future conferences dealing with children and media violence and global campaigns promoting children's rights are also described. A third article describes media literacy and participation programs in Argentina, Canada, Japan, and Spain. The report also reviews an anthology intended to provide a stimulus for adolescent discussion related to the construction of gender in television, advertising, and film. Recent findings on the depiction of rape in American television series are also presented. The report concludes with a list of relevant coming events. (KB)
