“Stereotyping, (De)Stigmatization, and Social Justice: Examining the Role of Media”

Srivi Ramasubramanian will provide an overview of how race as a social construct has real-world implications for social inequalities relating to media access, ownership, representation, and participation. She will draw on her research on mediated stereotypes and stigma, teaching experiences at a historically white institution, community-based advocacy work, and campus diversity leadership to illustrate the challenges and opportunities for using media for greater inclusion and social justice. She will conclude by sharing some thoughts on how media scholar-activist-educators committed to social justice can work together towards more inclusive media practices at the individual, organizational, and community levels around the world.
