COMM 359/559 Topics in Broadcasting:  TV Program Analysis
​Section Number 88​
​Credits ​3
​Description This class is focused on how the mass media generally, and televison specifically, have protrayed women and men, racial minorities and gays, lesbians, bisexuals, transgendered person and why.  It will center on the history of representation of gays on primetime TV from the earliest days of the medium to today.  Included is special consideration of the reliance upon well-established sterotypes that unrealistically portray specific roles for women and men, racial minorities, and sexual minorities in American life.  How do these portrayals affect or impact how we view the world and others in it?  By watching and reading both classic and contemporary representations via primetime television, we can gain a more critical perspective on the media's role in constructing and/or reflecting American culture.
