Asian American Representation in the Media

Tuesday, October 18, 6:30pm

Lori Kido Lopez, Director of UW Asian American Studies,  Associate Professor of Media and Cultural Studies in the Communication Arts department.

This talk explains the long history of how Asian Americans have protested racist imagery and fought for inclusion in movies, television, advertising, and other forms of entertainment media.  It includes a basic introduction to Asian American issues such as stereotypes and anti-Asian violence, but also explores the accomplishments of Asian American activism in both media and society.
