Instructions on Getting Started
First, begin by making sure you understand what Representation in the Media and Entertainment is=How our own identity (Hispanic Female, Black Male, Queer Person, etc) and cultures are presented in popular and mainstream media: TV, Film, LIterature, Art, Theatre, Magazines, etc. -does not include social media.
Then, before you have determined your thesis do your research (because you can’t make an educated argument if you haven’t done research).  You must do research, you can’t write this essay with only your existing knowledge.  Here are some research topics:

  • Hollywood Diversity Report-will give you statistics on % by race and gender

  • Effects of TV race and gender
  • Women and Advertising
  • How women are portrayed in film
  • Masculinity in TV and Film
  • Homophobia and the effects on Queer Youth
  • Representation of Mexicans (insert any identity) in the Media 
  • Highlight your research and make notes as you come to your conclusion about the question:
    What is my personal responsibility to the way media and entertainment portrays marginalized identities (People of Color, Women, African Americans/Blacks, Latinos, LGBTQ, etc)?
    In this essay you will need to both explain the context/situation/issue AND explain your responsibility
