This panel explores the impact of television upon the social construction of reality. Television provides a window through which many view the world. Often people act not upon first-hand knowledge of phenomena, but upon the images provided by television. These images often determine how certain groups are perceived by others as well as self-concept. This panel examines television's impact upon socialization in four areas: Television News, Advertising, Religion, Political Communication and Film.
Moderator: Edward Welch, Grambling State University
