This course teaches students how to study patterns of media portrayals. Students also learn the history of these patterns and ways they become interwoven in media structures, then indoctrinated to journalists and other media workers. Students employ research methods to scrutinize media texts through qualitative and quantitative content analysis, social and oral history, semiotics, and theme analyses. We discuss race and gender as well as representations and coverage of sexualities and sexual orientation, economic class and people with disabilities.
