Transcript of ST_Intro to Diversity in Media_FA16
If you see this in the upper left corner, it means you need to write down whatever is on that slide.
"I am, but I am not..."
Why is it important to study media
Why study issues of media
, in particular?
...to better understand how individuals and social groups are represented.....
....to better understand
certain groups are portrayed in certain ways
To recognize the role of stereotypes and assumptions in every day life....and how they are created or perpetuated by media.
These snap judgments are heavily influenced by media, particular for groups that we have not had direct experience with.
...no singular definition
- Who is included in media and who is not...
- What does that inclusion look like...
- How are entire groups framed/treated...
- Whose voices are heard, and whose are not…
- Who gets to decide what goes into media, and who doesn’t.
Understand equality (or lack thereof)

“Privilege simply means that under the exact same set of circumstances you’re in, life would be harder without your privilege.”
