ADVANCE RIT connectivity Series-Imag(in)ing Women: Language, Representation, Stereotypes
Open to all faculty and staff! This discussion panel will explore how language (verbal, visual, corporal, symbolic, etc.) frames images of women, how women stereotypes are thus created and how best to avoid falling prey of representational traps when we communicate.
Join some RIT faculty to begin a conversation and stir some (conceptual) waters. Light lunch provided.
