Diversity Dialogue 9/29: Race, Media, and Emotion in an Urban Classroom

Cynthia Lewis

Drawing on data from their year-long ethnographic study, Professor Cynthia Lewis, Ph.D. (Curriculum and Instruction) and Jessica Dockter explore the social politics of emotion in a diverse high school classroom where students analyzed and discussed racial representations in the media. The talk focuses on classroom discourse, students' perceptions, and students' media productions to show how emotion functioned to position students as critically engaged learners.
