This course will explore various social justice issues in the entertainment, media and technology industries. For example, we will consider the #MeToo and #OscarsSoWhite movements and broader issues of structural underrepresentation and discrimination against women, people of color, LGBTQ people, and other marginalized groups in Hollywood. We will also engage questions concerning inclusion in the tech industry, as well as how new technologies may perpetuate or disrupt discrimination. The class will include guest speakers from impacted industries and viewing and critiquing excerpts of relevant film and TV programs.
