Women on Posters
Mass Media in Digital Contexts students created an instagram where they visually analyzed movie posters to answer the question: How are women depicted in Hollywood rom-com movie posters from the 1950s to 2010s, and how has this depiction changed in comparison to the respective previous decade (if applicable) and overall?
Society, Media and Poverty
Students Ronja Bellinghausen, Hauke Fedderson, Nico Weers, Laila Habayeb, and Tara Vukcevic looked at how TV shows and Social Media display people living in poverty, focusing on the stereotypes and stigmatization that is being reinforced or created by the media. As a medium to present their results, they chose Instagram where they uploaded their interviews and survey results and shared their research via Infoposts.
MMDC students Riley, Laura, and Kirsten produced an animation about what humanity means to different cultures around the world.
& Self Image
Students Quan Dang, Marija Ignjatic, Sergio Atarama, and Paul Gramberg interviewed 18 students, asking them to reflect on what social media means to them and their self-images, in a rapid-fire montage. Their final product is a 2-part series discussing the influence of social media on self-image, created for the Mass Media in Digital Contexts (MMDC) 21' media project
This Could Be You
One of many challenges that comes with Globalization is the understanding of intersectionality. What better way is there than to read an experience encountered by someone just like, but unlike you? Which emotion get triggered? What comments are made? Will compassion prevail or will judgement take over? Will experiences be validated or dismissed? Join us in exploring the complex possibilities of human. With love, in solidarity with the BLM movement.
Cultures of Luxury, Taste & Lifestyle
Consumer Culture students Atiya, Sabine, and Feven produced a whiteboard sketch-noting video about the role luxury goods play in the consumer world.
