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.

The Online Image of the Romanian Gendarmerie after the Diaspora Protest on August 10, 2018: Crisis Communication Strategies

Abstract

In this study we conducted a research on the Facebook page of the Romanian Gendarmerie, to understand the magnitude of the effects of the crisis this institution is facing after the Diaspora Protest ended in violence. We monitored the posts from August 10 to December 31, 2018 and analyzed the most relevant 50 comments from each post, in order to determine their character: positive, negative or neutral. In conducting this study, we started from the hypothesis that this event has affected the image of the Romanian Gendarmerie in the long time, and the crisis communication strategies used by the representatives of this institution have made a significant contribution to postponing the image restoration.

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.

Ion D. Sîrbu, a classic of the Romanian literature

Abstract

The essay dedicated to I. D. Sîrbu comes in the context of celebrating 100 years since the birth of the great novelist, playwriter and essayist. I insisted at the beginning of the essay on his relationship with Lucian Blaga, professor of philosophy during the time of the refuge of the University “Regele Ferdinand I” from Cluj to Sibiu (1940-1944), focusing on the catalytic influence of the professor in the formation process of the young writers. Lucian Blaga was in favour of a bright “paideic model” like Socrate’s maieutics.

Gabriel Hasmațuchi, in front of the palette of cultural alternatives

Abstract

The „obsession” of Gabriel Hasmațuchi in his book Cultural alternatives (Techno Media, Sibiu, 20181) is the destiny of Romanian culture. The traditional conflict between archaic and modern in Romanian culture and society is being studied in some of its contemporaneous manifestations. The author believes that both the traditionalists and the modernists of this Romanian debate have contributed constructively over the years.
