Seminar :: Around the Fountain - "Beware of Others"

Raleigh : 04-18-2015

We started the program after having our breakfast together at IITS. This month we analyzed an article about the negative portrayals of "others" to build stereotypes. We considered subtle ways of creating fear of "the other" in children's animated movies. We also explored the relationship between language and identity, and contemplated on the use of non-traditional language variations in a stereotypical fashion. Unfortunately, watching such movies at a very young age, children learn to stereotype, and the images constructed in their minds may cause them undermine dialogue and mutual acceptance throughout their lifes.
