Race Gender and Media interaction

Race Gender and Media interaction. Ways of examining media.

Examining media

  • Framing: Making sense of the events around us. We use story lines with references/knowledge learned through the culture. Journalists frame their stories.
  • Symbolic annihilation: To be represented in media is a form of power. Absence of representation is absence of power, trivialization, condemnation, marginalization.
  • Intersectionality: We all have several identities—female, male, gay, black, white, deaf, bisexual, etc.

Media Studies

  • Social construction of reality: We learn through interaction with others what it means to be a member of a certain social group.
  • By being treated a certain way, we learn to accept being treated that way. We learn what it means to be a boy or a girl, a man or a woman.
  • Discourse: Interpretive frameworks to discuss social phenomenon like racism or sexism.
  • Cultural/social identity: We have the sense that we belong to a particular cultural group.
  • Ideology: Deeply held ideas about the way the world ought to be. One ideology, the dominant ideology, is usually accepted by most members of society.
  • Media play a role in perpetuating the dominant ideology.

Media Literacy

  • Interpreting how people use media in their everyday lives.
  • Understanding complex relationships among audiences and media content
  • Recognizing social and cultural contexts in which media is produced
  • Understanding the commercial nature of media ¨Recognizing the motivations of media producers as well as their ethical concerns and responsibilities

Critical Thinking

  • What do I see?
  • What do I think it means?
  • How did it get that way?
  • Is this appropriate/fair/effective?
  • What does this tell me about society?
  • Why do I think what I think?

Discourse
