Changing Theoretical Perspectives on Women's Media Images: The Emergence of Patterns in a New Area of Historical Scholarship.
Kitch, Carolyn
Journalism and Mass Communication Quarterly, v74 n3 p477-89 Aut 1997
Presents a historiographic essay surveying the past 25 years of historical research on images of women in American mass media. Places this work into four categories of scholarship (stereotypes approach, search for alternative images, examination of imagery as ideology, and "reading" of images as polysemic texts). Finds significant patterns and suggests that these trends illustrate larger issues in historical research. (SR)
