Description: This course offers a survey of media communication about race. We will examine media communication theories of identity formation, symbol creation, and influence. What media factors determine the discourse on race? The purpose of this course is to understand how notions of race have been defined and shaped in and through mass-mediated forms. Students will formulate informed recommendations on what could be done to promote greater cultural sensitivity and diversity in the media industry. Previously offered as HUMA 238 (Summer 2019). Repeatable for Credit.
