NIC's Phi Theta Kappa chapter to present pop culture seminar
The North Idaho College chapter of Phi Theta Kappa, an international honor society for two-year colleges, will present a seminar focused on stereotypes March 23.
The seminar is part of the chapter’s exploration of this year’s Phi Theta Kappa honors study topic “Popular Culture: Shaping and Reflecting Who We Are.” The topic is utilized as the focus of various Phi Theta Kappa honors programs.
The seminar, “Shattering Stereotypes: How Popular Culture Vilifies the Cultural Other” will be at 4 p.m. Thursday, March 23 in Room 102 of the Meyer Health and Sciences Building on NIC’s main campus. The focus will be on how Hollywood cinema continues to advance anti-Semitism through stereotypical images of Arabs.
The seminar will be presented via a videotaped lecture by Jack Shaheen, who is a professor emeritus of mass communication at Southern Illinois University and author of
Reel Bad Arabs: How Hollywood Vilifies a People
. He is a former CBS news consultant on Middle East affairs and regularly appears on national news programs such as
The Today Show
The event is free and open to the public and will include refreshments.
