Television Images: Exploring How They Affect People's View of Self and Others
Alexandrin, Julie R.
Multicultural Perspectives, v11 n3 p150-154 2009
Through television, many different images of ethnic, cultural, and ability groups are presented. Different people perceive these images in different ways. These perceptions affect how people value themselves and judge and interact with others. This article first summaries research on TV images and people's meaning and reaction to them. Second, it presents an exercise during which participants realize the meanings and values of themselves and others they acquire from TV images and the meanings as well as values others can learn from TV images. The exercise is a good beginning of critical analysis of television images of different ethnic, cultural, and ability groups. (Contains 2 figures and 1 footnote.)
