Film, television, and popular music/music videos often depict characters/people from different cultures. Sometimes these characters accurately reflect a cultural group. Other times, not so much. Select a film, television show, or group of songs/music videos you would like to study which highlights a characters/people from a cultural group you feel interest you, or you can relate to. Determine whether you feel the cultural background(s) depicted in your pieces is(are) accurately portrayed in your selections based on what we have studied in class.
Discuss the following points in your slideshow:
What culture is being highlighted in the media you have selected?
How does the character represent/or not represent the culture they are supposed to be portraying? (Consider the cultural beliefs, attitudes, views, practices you see in the piece.)
Select from the following concepts and evaluate how they can explain what you see take place in the media you select as they relate to the study of global psychology and mental health: prejudice, privilege, bias, racism, stereotypes, sexism, ageism, homophobia.
Support your points with theories related to these concepts.
Discuss your findings with someone who shares the same culture as the one(s) represented in your film. Highlight what their opinion is of the media and of your findings in your presentation.
Support your points with information from our textbook and at least 1-2 peer reviewed journal articles published within the last 5 years (You can find access to FREE ones via the FIU library). Journals must be related to course topics.
