1. Hollis, Larissa C. Depictions of Intimate Partner Violence: A Qualitative Analysis of Thriller & Drama Films over the last twenty years.

Degree: MA, Sociology, 2018, Texas State University – San Marcos

Studies show that images of gender and sexuality, specifically hegemonic masculinity at an early age (Signorielli 2009, Connell 2001). Few studies have examined how thriller and drama genres display images of violence, however, few found that images of violence are exaggerated in these films (Constanza del Rio Alvaro 2004). The purpose of this research is to examine images, scenes, and discourses of intimate partner violence. Using a two-step qualitative method, this study examined five thriller and drama films produced over the last twenty years. A content analysis of the films' images, scenes and discourses of hegemonic masculinity in intimate partner violence (IPV) is reflected in thriller and drama films. The findings of this study identified violent words and language, demeanors and social interactions, and intimacy and affection reflect acts of male dominance and control over women. Films from late 1990s reflected intimate relationship with more imagery of violence compared to more recently published films. Although, images of agency in femininity has changed over time with women having more agency in intimate partner relationship with more imagery of violence compared to more recently published films. Although, images of agency in femininity has changed over time with women having more agency in intimate partner relationship, thriller and drama films continue to depict women experiencing some form of intimate partner violence. In conclusion, images and discourses in thriller and drama films reflected intimate partner violence and reinforced images consistent with reinforcing hegemonic masculinity.

2. Lemus, Alejandra G. Examining the Relationship between English Proficiency and Health Care Experiences in the United States.

Degree: MA, Sociology, 2020, Texas State University – San Marcos

People with limited English proficiency (LEP) tend to be underserved and vulnerable in the United States health care system. Research has shown that LEP patients are more likely to have lower levels of education, be uninsured, have lower levels of income, and are more likely to experience discrimination during their health care encounters. This study seeks to find whether LEP patients face less favorable health care experiences than their non-LEP counterparts. Specifically, the study aims to examine the differences in health care utilization, access to health information, and satisfaction of health care services between LEP and non-LEP individuals. Based on previous use of LEP in health care literature, the limited English proficiency group in this study represents those whose primary household language is not English. The dataset used for this study was the 2007 National Survey of Children’s Health. Linear and logistic regression results found that LEP patients are less likely to feel that their children’s doctors and providers listen to them carefully and they are also less likely to report that they feel their providers respect their customs and values compared to non-LEP patients. Additionally, LEP patients are less likely to receive the specific health information they need and they utilize health care services less often than their non-LEP counterparts. These findings lead to the conclusion that the need for culturally diverse and culturally competent care remains in order to improve the health care utilization and encounters for LEP populations.
