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. Thearmontree, Angkana. Twenty-year trends of dental caries in United States children ages 2 – 15 years: Comparing the traditional DMF and adjusted DF indices.

Degree: Dr.P.H., Public health, 1999, University of Michigan

The DMF (df) index represents the count number of decayed, missing or filled teeth (or surfaces) in permanent and primary dentitions. Limitations of the traditional ME (df) index in measuring dental caries prevalence have been reported. This study aims to examine an alternative index to study trends in caries prevalence in the mixed dentitions of US children ages 2 – 15 years, between 1971 – 74 and 1988 – 94. The proposed caries index, adjusted DF (df) applies the concept of disease prevalence that is widely used in the epidemiological study of other diseases. It is a proportion of teeth (or surfaces) with caries (decayed or filled) to the total teeth (or surfaces) at risk in a mouth at a particular point in time. Two National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys (NHANES), NHANES I (1971 – 74) and NHANES III (1988 – 94) were used in the study. A total of 5,845 and 9,130 children ages 2 – 15 years in NHANES I and III respectively were included in the analysis. Because of the complex sampling design of the datasets, weighted analysis using Survey Data Analysis (SUDAAN) was always performed. The results suggest that children in 1988 – 94 retained their primary teeth longer and had permanent teeth erupted later than those in 1971 – 74. Variability in permanent teeth erupted and primary teeth present in NHANES III was greater than in NHANES I. Moderate to high correlation was found between the traditional DF (df) index and the adjusted DF (df) index. Similarities between the indices were found in the following aspects: (1) trends in age-specific caries experience between the two surveys, (2) caries distribution by tooth-type, (3) relationship with studied predictors in the regression analysis, and (4) predictive power (R2) for multiple regression models in 2 – 4 and 12 – 15 year olds. However, the adjusted DF (df) index was shown to be more sensitive to change in caries prevalence in primary teeth over time and tended to show a more consistent order of surface type susceptibility to caries across age groups and dentitions than the traditional DMF (df) index. In 5 – 11 year olds, while a higher R2 was observed in the model of permanent teeth measured by DFS, R2 in the model for primary teeth was greater when measured by adjusted dfs. In conclusion, the adjusted DF (df) index is generally comparable to the traditional DMF (df) index in measuring caries prevalence of children 2 – 15 years old. However, the adjusted indices performed better in presenting caries prevalence in primary teeth in children ages 5 – 11 years, who have mixed dentitions. Ultimately, there is the potential that an adjusted index can be more useful in identifying caries susceptible groups and individuals than the traditional DMF (df) index.
