Event description

Description

You are invited to a free event: The Digital Stereotypes Collaboration team would like to invite you to a two-day symposium in which scholars, creative artists, writers and media practitioners from across Australia will present critical accounts of contemporary stereotyping practices.

Although we now live in a digital era in which the potential for diverse creativity, interactivity and online sharing is widespread, stereotypes of minorities persist in media, film, television, advertising, online searches, stock image databases etc. This is particularly the case for: Gender- and sexually-diverse persons, lgbtiq+ communities; Indigenous persons and communities; Migrants, temporary migrants, international students, refugees and asylum seekers. There are of course political, social, health and education implications of stereotyping, yet the practice of stereotyping itself is not always something we can do away with (for example, sometimes media need to rely on a stereotype to target a recognisable group quickly with, say, an important health message)

Speakers include: Kath Albury (Swinburne), Mary Lou Rasmussen (ANU), Jane Lydon (UWA), Leigh Hill (Out in Perth), Brady Robards (Monash), Crystal Abidin (Jönköping), Jude Elund (ECU), Son Vivienne (RMIT) and many others….

About the symposium:

- Will be held on the University of Western Australia campus, 4-5 December.

- Presented in collaboration with WACCM (WA Communication, Culture and Media group).

- Lunch will be provided on both days.

** Bookings essential **
