Woburn Public Library Speaker Series: LGBT in the Mass Media

From date: 
Thu, 11/03/2016 - 7:00pm

Join the Woburn Public Library in inviting Journalism/Communications Professor Amy Callahan for another part in the Woburn Public Library Speakers series. Professor Callahan will be presenting "From Absence to Ellen: A Survey of LGBT Representation in the Mass Media." It will explore the transition from the negative and harmful portrayal of the LGBT community in the mass media, to its current state, one in which LGBT individuals are portrayed much more widely yet in still often controversial depictions. 

The program will begin at 7pm at the Woburn Public Library. It is running in partnership with the Friends of the Woburn Public Library and the Northern Essex Community College Speakers Bureau.
