Dr. Greaves examines images of Black women
Posted by Fernando.Arzola on Thursday January 10, 2013
Dr. Sharron Greaves' "Leave It Dead: Implications That Come With the Media Reviving Archaic and Irresponsible Images of Black Women," research presentation at the Communication of Choice and Consequence Conference interrogates the ethical and practical consequences of pervasive distorted and stereotypical media imagery of the black female form, from the Hollywood mammy's hyperbolic girth to the recent specious scrutiny of Olympic gold medalist Gabrielle Douglas' hair. Dr. Greaves is Associate Professor of Communications.
The conference was sponsored by the New York State Communication Association. The NYSCA is an organization of faculty, students, and professionals in communication – who are dedicated to studying, improving, and applying the principles and practices of communication to all walks of life.
