Under-reported World: Media Agenda Setting & Social Justice
The news we view on a daily basis is first screened by media agenda-setting. What issues remain under-reported? How does that shape our understanding of social justice issues?
Dr. Avis Meyer, a well-known professor in the Communications Department with decades of experience with journalism and media studies, will be giving a brief but in-depth perspective on the major issues concerning media agenda-setting. Following his speech, a short presentation by Political Round Table will present relevant research on the topic. This program will conclude with a 40-minute long discussion involving the students in an interactive conversation with Dr. Meyer. See you there!
