Faculty statement on Asian hate

The Department of Media, Journalism & Film condemns the rise in crimes against Asians and Asian Americans in the United States. 

The department also recognizes the ways that media – including news, entertainment, and social media – have participated in the reproduction and perpetuation of stereotypes of individuals of Asian or Asian American background. Stereotypes can work to both homogenize diverse communities and dehumanize individuals. In our work as media producers, teachers, and scholars we are committed to doing more to interrogate and challenge such representations wherever we find them.

See the complete statement here, including a statement made by one of our faculty at the gathering in Cincinnati at the Freedom Center in support of the Asian and Pacific Islander community.
