The Center for Communication, Difference, and Equity (CCDE) hosts the fourth annual Race & Media conference. The mission of the conference is to a) recognize that racial difference, racialized identities, and racism play a critical role in media production, distribution, and consumption; b) highlight the prevailing rhetoric of post-racism, 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; and c) 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.
