Mythbusting the Messages!
Join us on a brief journey through the world of modern media, what it tells us, and why so much of that is wrong.
Does the media tell us about who we are? and how we should be?
Who "owns" the imagery of cultural history?
Why does "normal" in the movies, ads, and on TV never look like what is "normal" for me?
We'll look at the differences between 'appropriation' and 'appreciation;' and the (mis)representation of race, gender, and class that dominate the media bubble we live in.
