Race, Indigeneity and the Media


Description

This course considers the media in relation to racial and ethnic identities. It draws on critical race theory, its counterpart whiteness studies and postcolonial theory. The first part of the course introduces theories about "race" and the media, and examines how dominant media represent different cultural groups as "other" to allegedly mainstream identities. The second part of the course focuses more specifically on indigenous peoples and the media in both local and international contexts. It also includes a specific focus on Māori engagement with media and “Pākehā-ness” as an ethnic identity.
