Race & Media Conference 2015
September 24th-26th 2015
This conference on race and media is an interdisciplinary conference focusing on research at the intersections of critical race theories and media studies. By bringing together emerging and established scholars, this conference is an opportunity to share research in a space especially created for working through difficult questions on race.
The mission of the conference is three-fold:
- Recognizing that racial difference, racialized identities, and racism play a critical role in structuring media production, distribution, and consumption.
- Highlighting prevailing rhetorics of postracism, which combined with an increasing threat to ethnic studies and other academic programs that focus on identity, have weakened our ability to call attention to race.
- Reinvigorating the conversation about the complex relationship between race and media.
The conference is free and open to the public, so please join us!
