Sample Projeqt: Media Representations of Female Athletes
Include all group names on this slide.
Write a 100 word paragraph summarizing your projeqt. What is it about? What does it include?
Example: This projeqt focuses on media representations of female athletes. Research pertaining to female athletes has indicated that women are much more likely to be portrayed as Buysse and Embser-Herbert (2004) noted "ladies" first, athletes second. The slides reflect various instances in which female athletes are presented in ways that challenge or reproduce dominant media narratives. In addition, I included the twitter feed of the Tucker Center for Research on Girls & Women in Sport as an example of an institution that researches this topic. The "trigger warnings" for this projeqt reflects the fact that it includes some stereotypical depictions of female athletes.
