Romanian Student Media as Pedagogical Tools and Sites for Alternative Journalism

Abstract

Although enjoying a history that spans more than 160 years, Romanian student media have not been researched extensively at all. The few existing studies combine a monographic approach to the phenomenon with various oral histories, as one particular way to reconstruct a past that has been frequently neglected. The present paper is an attempt to analyse student media outlets by showcasing its identification either as a pedagogical tool or as a form of alternative press, with a particular emphasis on the current Romanian student media outlets. In order to fulfil our two-folded objective (to extract both quantitative and qualitative data), we used qualitative survey research. The main results reveal that print projects (a total of 15) are still the most numerous among student media outlets, followed by six online journalistic projects, five radio stations and four TV stations. Generally, these serve as pedagogical tools due to the co-optation in the editorial teams of professors who act as supervisors and mentors. In comparison to the student reviews from the communist period or previous, the (self-) identification with alternative media is, with few notable exceptions, rather weak.

Parody and Pastiche of Satirical Romanian Press

Abstract

Satirical Romanian press use irony form with the purpose to transpose realities in acid writing and to reform the problems which exist in our society. This study presents one of the most known ways to express irony: intertextuality. Through a series of examples extracted from the satirical press we will try to observe the role that the parody and the pastiche – as important elements of the intertextuality – hold in the expression of irony, but also the impact that they have on the reader.

The co-creation of a video to inspire humanitarianism: How an Educational Entrepreneurial approach inspired humanitarian workers to be mindfully innovative whilst working with technology.

Abstract

This paper demonstrates the value of embracing digital technology in order to effect positive change in a non-governmental (NGO) charity organisation, in this case the Irish Charity Crosscause. The outcome of the research was the creation of a charity video, Crosscause: Making a Difference, to showcase humanitarian work in Ireland and Romania with a view to inspiring others to contribute in some capacity to this cause. Video is an important medium to provide connections with a wider audience, as it gives humanitarian workers and marginalised communities an opportunity to tell their story by making a compelling and evocative case to others. Visual media not only makes connections with an audience, but can also positively challenge people to consider what is happening in the world around them.

The research process incorporated an entrepreneurial methodology - an Educational Entrepreneurial approach to action research-with four steps: Exploring, Understanding, Creating and Transforming, which is designed to guide practitioner-researchers as they embrace digital technology to resolve an identified need in a workplace context, including people in disadvantaged settings. In this research, there was an identified need for a charity video to link the giving in Ireland to the receiving in Romania, so that viewers could see the tangible effects of their contributions. A further aim of the research was to illustrate how volunteering can inspire solidarity among Irish and Romanian communities.
