Diversity According to South Park & Family Guy
Tuesday, December 5

12-1:25, 103 Tmzko
Many times television imitates life and then life begins to imitate television. Matt uses pop culture, news media, and of course Family Guy and South Park clips to demonstrate the opportunities that arise to learn about diversity in everyday life. His interpretation of these popular cultural icons is engaging and encourages a fresh look at life around us. He identifies the ways these programs breakdown stereotypical attitudes and behavior toward people’s differences. Start asking: “what’s the point, what’s the moral, and how are they reflective of the goings on of our culture?” Refreshments provided.
