Sexual and racial stereotypes are constantly being redefined and reinforced on TV and in movies, in magazines and on the Web, in video games—practically everywhere. They frame perceptions, reinforce prejudices, and promote a fear of “the Other.” This two-part series scrutinizes the media in order to both expose and understand common sources of bias and the intentions behind them. Expert commentary is provided by Carolyn Kitch, director of the Mass Media and Communication program at Temple University; Oscar Gandy, professor emeritus at the Annenberg School for Communication; and NPR’s Bob Garfield, cohost of On the Media. A Films for the Humanities & Sciences Production. 2-part series, 38–42 minutes each.
