The panel will focus on how current programming continues to either portray stereotypes or to completely ignore characters' racial, sexual, gender, identities. Panelists will be focusing on numerous areas of interest, including how the Disney “princess” concept affects the self-identity of young girls, how characters with dual identities are portrayed on television, constructing identities of race and gender in cyberspace, how race and ethnicity are represented in TV court shows, and Asian-American stereotypes on television.
Moderator: Victor Evans, Thiel College
