CIBER Focus: "Color Balance in Product Development and Media" with Dr. Lorna Roth - September 27, 2018
Dr. Lorna Roth is Professor Emerita of the Communication Studies Department at Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. She focuses her research and teaching on international communication, indigenous television, oral histories, and the relationship between media and race. Her most recent effort, “The Colour Balance Project,” investigates racialized imagery and skin color representations in consumer products and media.
In this edition of Ciber Focus, Dr. Roth will discuss this project, why
the state of race in product development is important, and what consumers and
producers can do to mitigate bias in the future.
