This is a conversation about gender, race, class, ability, ethnicity and media literacy. We’ll be talking about how representation of marginalized groups matter and how can can attune our gaze to recognize misrepresentations, stereotypes and absences in the media. We’ll explore media coverage (film, journalism content, advertising, et al.) of violence against women, feminism, domestic terrorism, religion, aging, health, style, and public policy.
