What’s that Again? How media influences relationships and our lives – Celeste Jackson

Discusses how different media portray relationships, violence (with examples) and how people are influenced by music, books, movies and television. It addresses both polyamory and monogamy. I prefer opening with the presentation and letting it evolve into round table because I know that though my ideas are good, there are people who probably have better ones. Discussion topics include: violence, degradation of women in music using lyrics from popular songs, domestic violence and abuse, portrayals of books in film (Disney’s Quasimodo is a good example), 50 Shades, and in general, how media affects the way people perceive and judge things.
