Resonance: This is held to occur when the viewers’ daily life experiences are similar to the scenario broadcasted. -> feel more fearful. Eg: living in high crime rated area.

Devin is a teenager. For hundreds of hours, he played Grand Theft Auto which is a world governed by the laws of depravity. See a car you like? Steal it. Someone you don't like? Stomp her. A cop in your way? Blow him away. Based on that concept, Devin killed 3 men, 2 of them were police when he was suspected for stealing a car.

CULTIVATION THEORYHistorical Background<br />In the 1950s, Television became a way of life in US<br />The widespread influence of TV made a concern for many scholars and policy makers<br />-> The birth of CULTIVATION THEORY<br />
CULTIVATION THEORYHistorical background<br /> Proposed by <br /> Professor George Gerbner<br />Dean of the Annenberg School of Communications at the University of Pennsylvania in the mid 1960s.<br />
CULTIVATION THEORYMain arguments<br /><ul><li>Looking at the TV as a social agent and studying the effect of TV exposure.
However, we’d like to expend the theory into another medium, the Internet. </li></li></ul><li>
CULTIVATION THEORYMain arguments<br />‘The more we live with TV, the more invisible it becomes’( Chandler 1995).<br />Watching TV changes the viewer’s attitudes rather than behavior.<br />The exposure to television overtime will shape viewer’s perceptions of reality. <br />Having long term effects which are small, gradual, indirect but significant.<br />
CULTIVATION THEORYMain Arguments<br /><ul><li>2 order effects:</li></ul> . First order effects: general beliefs about the world day.<br /> . Second order effects: specific attitudes and judgments.<br /><ul><li>Dividing viewers into 2 levels : light viewers, heavy viewers.</li></li></ul><li>CULTIVATION THEORYMain Arguments<br />Heavy viewers’ demographics:<br />. Young people<br /> . Low socio-economic groups<br /> .Watching TV more than 4 hours/day<br /> .Being affected by Mean World Syndrome<br />(They see the world as a nastier and more violent than what it really is.)<br /> . Involved in Resonance – a double dose effect.<br />
CULTIVATION THEORYMain Arguments<br />. less selective in what they view<br /> . more likely to expect to be involved in violence (eg: game online)<br />
CULTIVATION THEORYMain Arguments<br />Grand Theft Auto’s victim<br /> “Life’s like a video game.<br /> You’ve got to die sometime.”<br /> Devin Moore 2005<br />Figure 4. Reproduced from: Miller 2005 <br />
CULTIVATION THEORYMain Arguments<br /> . More fearful about life ( eg: worried about walking alone at night, overestimating the size of law enforcement, distrustful of people)<br /> . BUT they’re unaware of any influence of TV exposure on their attitudes.<br /> <br />
Experience, knowledge.</li></ul>Viewers are selective because the breakdowns by content type are more useful than measures of total viewing.<br />
What we’ve discussed?<br />Watching television change the viewer’s attitude rather than behavior<br />Heavy viewers are like to shape their concept of reality from watching TV<br />However, our attitude is also influenced by other factors such as other kinds of media, people, experience or knowledge.<br />
