Race and Media

This course focuses on the ways that media have shaped public discourse about race and racism both within and beyond the confines of the United States. The course considers a variety of media - television sitcoms and drama, television and print news, film, popular music, the internet and others - for the purpose of investigating how media have and continue to variably influence the public's 'racial agenda,' and the general content, tone and tenor of racial conversation in the public sphere.
