We are very much looking forward to the next installment of the Academic Lecture series on Stereotypes in the Media, featuring Mike Reiss — Emmy-Award winning writer and producer of the Simpsons (among other comedy and animated series).  In addition to being entertaining, it should be a neat insight into the evolution of television as a medium, from someone who has been involved in shaping and poking fun at the medium for a few decades.

For folks interested in other groups and organizations that study media and act as watch-dogs for veracity in the media, check out the Information and Communication Ethics LibGuide
