Why does media representation matter? What is its impact? In 2016, the Academy Awards drew criticism when no actors of color were nominated in the major categories. Join the conversation on race and gender representation in film and popular culture before the 2017 Oscars ceremony. The event will feature guest speaker Pedro Bermudez, Visiting Assistant Professor of Cinema at the University of Hartford and independent filmmaker. Learn more or make reservations.
