Death Takes a Selfie: Complications of Body Image and Gender Identity in Electronic and Social Media

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This panel seeks to promote discussion of prevalent and controversial issues related to the depiction of gender in social and electronic visual media. Do content producers feature constructive depictions of female and male gender roles? What are the dangers of perpetuating physically unattainable images of beauty? Why do producers continue to create such fare? What are the effects, intended or unintended, upon their audiences? This panel will research these issues and more.
Moderator: Roger Allman, Central Michigan University
