Abstract: Human behavior is only partly based on reflective thinking whereas many, especially cognitive less demanding activities may be initiated in a habitual way (e.g., Strack/Deutsch 2004). Since so called conventional political activities require more (not only cognitive) efforts (e.g., long-term obligation) than unconventional or electoral political participation which is mostly less binding and more event-related, it comes to mind that the latter are activated via an "affective" pathway while conventional action probably requires a reflective behavioral system. As political interest orders people's impulses (e.g., Herbart 1806) it should be a powerful predictor of unconventional and electoral political activity. For conventional participation, however, reflection and thus (subjective) political competence (i.e., internal political efficacy) might be necessary, possibly supplemented by political interest. This assumption is followed using an online panel sample of Turkish migrants in Germany, comparing it with a non-migrant sample. Therefore, multiple regression analyses are used and complemented by multivariate analyses employing more complex path models. For the migrant sample, results point to the overwhelming importance of political interest in the prediction of legal political activity. In regard to conventional political activity, both variables of cognitive politicization have only indirect effects that are mediated via readiness to participate in conventional political action. For non-migrants, however, readiness to participate has no predictive relevance. Adding to that, here subjective political competence seems to be of more predictive value than political interest. These (differing) patterns are confronted with each other, focusing on the importance of political action and societal integration of migrants.

Abstract: Human behavior is only partly based on reflective thinking whereas many activities might be initiated habitually. Since “conventional” political activities require more efforts than unconventional or electoral political participation, the latter might be activated via an “affective” pathway represented by political interest (Hypothesis I). In contrast, conventional action probably requires a reflective behavioral system. Subjective political competence (i.e., internal political efficacy) is thus hypothesized to be a necessary precondition to initiate conventional participation (Hypothesis II), possibly supplemented by political interest. Both assumptions are followed using an online panel sample of Turkish migrants in Germany, comparing it with non-migrants. Therefore, multiple regression analyses are used and complemented with complex path models and qualitative interviews. Regarding the Turkish migrants, first results support Hypothesis I and indicate the importance of political interest in predicting legal political activity (voting, conventional, and unconventional action). With regard to conventional action, preliminary analyses show partial evidence for Hypothesis II: both variables of cognitive politicization have indirect effects being mediated via readiness to participate in conventional political action. In contrast, for non-migrants subjective political competence seems to be of more predictive value than political interest. Yet there is limited evidence with regard to both hypotheses in the comparison sample. These differing patterns are going to be examined in more detail using a large sample from the German Longitudinal Election Study to discussing the importance of political action and societal integration of migrants.

Abstract: Political theorists should break with a long-standing practice of those writing about the politics of film, namely understanding the politics of film through interpretations confined to their narrative structures. This approach privileges narrative to the neglect of legitimate political possibilities belonging to the images of which a film's narrative consists or interprets the politics of images in terms of the overriding political meaning of film narrative. Images often challenge politics attributed to a film's narrative structure, whereas narratology buries the politics of the image beneath the politics of the film narrative. But it is also to be recognized that the image owes its existence to the narrative structure of film. What is thus required is that our recovery of the politics of the image in film account for two things. On the one hand, for the political work the image performs independently of a film's narrative and, on the other, for the work the narrative and the image perform together. It is not simply a matter, in other words, of showing the politics of the image to be at odds with the politics of a film's narrative. Only by showing the image to be potentially at odds while also continuous with the film narrative to which it generically belongs can we appreciate how the image represents a possible politics emerging within though also against film’s narrative structure.

Abstract: Political news reporting in China is highly ideology-oriented and takes the responsibility of propaganda, but it shows a fixed pattern in narratives and frames. Based on the communication mediation model, this study explores the impact of exposure to political news on educated young Chinese’s political participation through the mediation of political trust, political alienation and attitude towards Internet censorship through a survey on Chinese college students using an analogous PPS sampling approach (N=495). The results of path analysis suggest that exposure to political news encourages participation directly, but at the same time arouses political distrust, political alienation and low support for Internet censorship, demonstrating the malfunction of political propaganda on educated young people. In addition, Chinese college students’ political distrust is positively related to political alienation, implying that the respondents’ understanding of “politics” in “political trust” and “political participation” is different.

Abstract: This article focused on the effects of entertainment narratives on the political learning and psychological engagement of the young audience with the mediated characters. Our work is an experimental investigation of the effects of constructive portrayal of female politicians in entertainment media on the cognitive and affective responses to entertainment narratives. We collected data from 310 participants, and the results indicated that participants’ political knowledge significantly increased after exposure to the biographical political movies. The study revealed that the biographical movies facilitated learning by significantly increasing the political knowledge of the audience. We also specified a path model and the results indicated that initial political knowledge transported the audience into the narrative of the biographical movies, which transfigured entertainment into an enjoyable experience, and significantly and positively affected audience’s political knowledge and attitude towards female politicians.
