A short history of advertising in China
“It was difficult to persuade Chinese people to break away from their existing consumption habits and accept new foreign products…” So wrote Jian Wang in a highly insightful article in the International Journal of Advertising on the history of advertising in China. The rest of the quote reads “…during China’s very first major encounter with foreign consumer goods and culture”. Wang is referring to China, notably Shanghai, in the 1920s and 1930s, when China’s first advertising boom hit. I could replace was with is of the opening sentence –“It is difficult to persuade ... market research, surveys and trends
Is Wikipedia Becoming a Respectable Academic Source?
Last year a colleague in the English department described a conversation in which a friend revealed a dirty little secret: “I use Wikipedia all the time for my research—but I certainly wouldn’t cite it.”  This got me wondering: How many humanities and social sciences researchers are discussing, using, and citing Wikipedia?  To find out, I searched Project Muse and JSTOR, leading electronic journal collections for the humanities and social sciences, for the term “wikipedia,” which picked up both references to Wikipedia and citations of the wikipedia URL.  I retrieved 167 results from between 2002 and 2008, all but 8 of ... market research, surveys and trends

We’ve considered some of the good that advertising can do. Now let’s check out some of the bad—and the ugly. It’s certainly not hard to identify the hot buttons—a lot of people slam advertising for a lot of different reasons. Some objections may be a bit paranoid, as when the social critic Vance Packard wrote more than fifty years ago, “Large-scale efforts are being made, often with impressive success, to channel our unthinking habits, our purchasing decisions, and our thought processes by the use of insights gleaned from psychiatry and the social sciences.” [ 42 ] Still, there are plenty of valid reasons to question the methods ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
High Culture/Low Culture: Advertising in Literature, Art, Film ...
This unit examines the relation of high culture (fine art, classical music, great literature) to popular culture (blockbuster movies, rock concerts, comic books, and advertisements). To many people, they seem worlds apart. A more careful examination shows that literature, art, and film are intimately linked to advertising. And on at least one occasion each year—Super Bowl Sunday, advertising is elevated to the status of popular cultural spectacle to rival almost every other form of expressive culture. 1. Literature and Advertising Scholars and literary critics differ over what constitutes literature. The once revered canon ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
HAGELIN: Teach truth, don't yield to 'new morality'
It's back-to-school time again, with sales on school supplies and state tax holidays on clothes and notebooks. But parents may have a lot more to worry about this school year than looking for deals. Last week, federal court Judge Vaughn Walker decided that California's Proposition 8, which defined marriage as the union of one man and one woman, has no "rational basis" and is therefore unconstitutional. Why? Because "moral and religious views form the only basis for a belief that same-sex couples are different from opposite-sex couples." And those moral views are "irrational," according to ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
