Telecommunications | Race, Ethnicity & the Media
T191 | 21468 | Weaver, A.


This course presents an overview of racial depictions in the mass
media and the effects of these messages on viewers. We will discuss
the structural and social origins of stereotypic media and we will
analyze how contemporary media address race. We also will look at
the effects of racial depictions in entertainment television and
movies, news and political media, music, and video games from a
social scientific perspective. Intersections between race,
ethnicity, class, and gender will also be explored.
