Barnhurst, Kevin G.; Wartella, Ellen
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v8 n2 p195-209 Jun 1991
Explores what the newspaper means to young adults. Analyzes 164 college students' autobiographies of their newspaper experiences. Constructs a composite narrative of how young adults are introduced to newspapers as children, interact with them in the school years, and eventually become regular users. Finds that young adults experience the newspaper as a ritual, a symbol, and a tool. (MG)
