Ethnicity and the Mass Media in Canada: An Annotated Bibliography = Bibliographie annotee sur les ethnies et les media au Canada.
Karim, Karim H.; Sansom, Gareth
This bibliography lists 135 publications dealing with the portrayal and employment of Canadians of all ethnic backgrounds in mainstream Canadian media. A broad definition of mass media encompassing all widely distributed communicative materials, including educational textbooks and forms of hate material, is used for the purposes of the bibliography. Materials that deal with ethnic or community media and with the mainstream media images of foreign groups of people are not presented. The bibliography includes a wide range of relevant media research, content analyses, conference proceedings, task force reports, speeches, legislation, industry codes, and depiction guides. Of the 135 entries, which are arranged alphabetically by personal or corporate author, 76 are annotated. The annotations generally use the terminology that appears in the respective textual materials in order to maintain the integrity of the authors' discursive intent. Among subjects covered in the cited works are the following: (1) children and prejudice; (2) broadcast industry role and responsibilities; (3) ethnic images and stereotypes propagated through media; (4) advertising codes and standards; (5) sex role stereotypes in the media; (6) media responses to cultural and racial diversity; (7) media depiction of immigration and immigrants; (8) media images of native Americans; (9) textbook bias; and (10) the representation of visible minorities in the media.
