Shattering Stereotypes: How Popular Culture Vilifies the Cultural Other

Posted by alphachinu on July 29, 2006

We will be showing the third installment in the 2005-2006 Honors Satellite Seminar Series on Monday, August 7, 2006, in the Quiet Lounge of the Campus Center at 5:30PM. The installment is Dr. Jack Shaheen’s presentation on the dangers of stereotypes and stereotypical thinking for all of us. Irregardless of the source of the stereotype there are commonalities to them all that Dr. Shaheen speaks about. How do you recognize stereotypes, how to combat stereotypes, and how to stop stereotypical thinking are all topics that will be discussed.

The format will be presentation and discussion facilitated by myself. Please bring a light snack, a friend, and an open mind to enjoy the show.

Sincerely,
Jennifer Cragen
Vice President of Scholarship
