Attention to racial/ethnic and gender issues in the media is of vital importance in our society – not only for researchers but also for teachers and students. This panel represents a selection of new material appearing in the third edition of Rebecca Ann Lind’s “Race/Gender/Media,” to be released in January 2012 by Allyn & Bacon. With almost all of the readings new to this edition, the book and the panel considers race, gender, and class issues in the media from the perspective of audiences, content, and production. This is conceived as a “high-density” session, with panelists presenting short, conversational overviews of their work. Following the overviews, the floor will be open for discussion and question-and-answers regarding the work itself and how the research can be incorporated into a classroom setting – even a lower-division undergraduate course. We are consciously not including a respondent, because we want to allow more time for interchange among all participants – panelists and audience members. A similar format has been used to present new work from the prior two editions of the book, and it was well-received by the audience (hence the “3.0” in the session title). All of the work to be presented here is new, and has not been presented at any other conference. Moderator: Rebecca Ann Lind, University of Illinois at Chicago
