Hello! I am a first-year M.A. student here at IU, and I received my B.S. in journalism from Texas State University. While at IU, I am focusing my research to understand how historically stereotypical representations influence contemporary media portrayals. Essentially, I am trying to see if current media depictions still have stereotypical elements or if representations have shifted due to overt racism not being tolerated.
