About the author (1989)

University of Alabama

Arthur A. Raney (Ph.D., University of Alabama, 1998) is an associate professor in the Department of Communication at Florida State University (USA). His research interests include psychological effects of media entertainment content, with an emphasis on the role of cognition in the enjoyment of drama, sports, and other fare. His most recent work contributes to entertainment theory by further investigating the role of moral judgment in the formation of dispositions toward media characters, as well as the role of moral judgment and justice considerations in enjoyment. He is currently co-editing (with Dr. Jennings Bryant) the forthcoming "Handbook of Sports and Media" (Lawrence Erlbaum Associates), which seeks to better define the parameters of social scientific, historical, and critical investigations into the relationship between sports and media. His additional sports-related writings can be found in "Sport Communication, Part III: Reception of Sport in the Media" (2004), "Communication and Emotion: Essays in Honor of Dolf Zillmann "(2003)," Zur Medialisierung des Sports "(2002), "Media Entertainment: The Psychology of its Appeal "(2000), and "MediaSport "(1998).
