Race and Media, May 10-12th, 2018

The mission of the conference is four-fold:

To recognize that racial difference, racialized identities, and racism play a critical role in structuring media production, distribution, and consumption.

To highlight the prevailing rhetoric 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.

To reinvigorate conversations about the complex relationship between race and media, and the necessary role of praxis, or theory-in-action, of race and media scholarship.

To foster an academic community of members who engage, develop, mentor, and support fellow scholars of race and media across and within rank.

Additional Event Details will be announced in 2018.

The 2018 Race and Media Conference is made possible by the generous support of Microsoft.…
