Media Construction of the Chesapeake Bay Watershed
How do news media work to form a collective identity within and across particular regions? Through a collaboration between the Communication, Science, and Society Initiative (CSSI) and Ecology plus Design (E+D), we examine local news content to identify concepts that may lend insight toward how audiences in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed (CBW) may perceive themselves to be CBW citizens, as a first step toward better understanding collective identity formation. We pay particular attention to how these concepts vary by distance from the Bay. There appear to be meaningful divergences in the local news content that are reflective of the differing demographic and environmental characteristics.
