Race & Ethnicity in Journalism

Fall 2020

Taught By: Kia Gregory and Deva Woodly

Section: A

CRN: 9229

Credits: 4

"An examination of frames in media, with examples from the 19th century, focused largely on present day, for example stories that described Michael Brown as “no angel” and that labeled the Bronx as “wild.” The course will explore: who owns news stories and narratives; the impacts; how such frames in the context of public and political policy shape society and impact communities; the impact of racial diversity on media, and in employment and access; development of media for individuals and communities of color; the birth of the alternative press; and how word usage and style evolve and shape media narratives. The class, as reporters, will explore their assumptions and later develop solution sets for media. Students will each produce one news story, and work collaboratively on design elements, on a community in the city that is underreported. "
