Covering Race

This course is intended for upper years students (students with year 3 status or higher), who have an interest in media studies and Black issues. The course will cover the history of Black Canadians and how problematic narratives have perpetuated racial biases and systemic injustice. How does this reality impact the media industry generally and journalism specifically? How is it reflected in the media workplace and in the journalism it produces? In this reporting course, students will identify these biases and deconstruct reporting on Black communities. The course will also examine the ways in which the representation of Black people has changed (or been perpetuated) when produced by Black media. The course approach will stem from a place of empowerment, elevating Black voices, perspectives and stories and recognizing their importance and value. Assignments include writing, class presentations, and guest speakers.
