María Len Ríos Multicultural Services and Programs (MSP) Lecture
November 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm EST
María Len-Ríos, associate dean for academic affairs and public relations professor, will be featured in the Multicultural Services and Programs lecture series. The topic of the lecture is: News Media Effects on Public Opinion about Crime and Race/Ethnicity.
Viewers will watch via YouTube Live and/or Facebook Live.
Here is the abstract from Len-Ríos’ lecture: Scholars have argued for decades that news media frame the public’s window to the world. Thus, how well news journalists do their jobs can affect what we think we know and what society comes to believe about crime and criminality. In this brief lecture, Dr. Len-Ríos will highlight what media researchers have learned from decades of research about the content of crime news, and the effects it has on audiences and public opinion. She will also propose ways news audiences can become more critical consumers of crime news.
