dc.description.abstractThis thesis aims to examine the evolution of the media in the Aung San Suu Kyi saga to show the changes that have taken place, from the dominance of print media at the beginning of her struggle for democracy in 1988 to the growing role of digital media by 2013. Technological advancements have allowed digital media to be fast, far-reaching, and pervasive. The media has thus been an important tool in impacting change in Burma, from military rule to some civilian rule. The term Burma will be used in the thesis until 1989, when the military junta changed the country's name to Myanmar. The scope covers a period of twenty-four years and includes the media chronicling her return home in 1989 to care for her ailing mother, winning the 1990 elections and the 1991 Nobel Peace Prize, and being elected to parliament in 2012 as her country's most notable democratic leader.en
dc.description.abstractThe organization of this thesis is in five parts. Chapter I, "Introduction: Background Information to 1988 on the Media, Burma (Myanmar), and Aung San Suu Kyi," sets the stage by providing important relevant information for the rest of this thesis. Chapter II, "The Role of Print and Broadcast Media in the Aung San Suu Kyi Saga, 1989-1990," tracks the beginning of her relationship with the media and shows how they reinforce each other. The media provided her a platform to voice her country's struggles and she afforded the media compelling stories on human rights abuses. Chapter III, "The Continued Domination of Print and Broadcast Media in the Aung San Suu Kyi Saga, 1991-1999," continues to explore this relationship by focusing on socio-economic and political problems in Myanmar as well as on the media's role. Chapter IV, "Aung San Suu Kyi and the Media, 2000-2011," examines some long-awaited changes in Myanmar along with the growth of digital media, which captured and immediately relayed these historic events. Chapter V, "Conclusion: The Media's Role in the Aung San Suu Kyi Saga, 2012-2013, and Future Prospects," traces the latest developments in media coverage of Myanmar and Aung San Suu Kyi and discusses some future prospects regarding her and the media.en
