Continuing the Scholar Sip Conversation

September 11, 2014
Scholar Sip with Professor Molly Magestro

Almost 30 people crowded in the library lounge to learn more about Dr. Molly Magestro’s upcoming book, “Assault on the Small Screen.”  Judging by the numerous questions, this research really strikes a chord with people. What does it say about our society that traumatic stories of assault become storylines for entertainment? Does the way criminal dramas portray rape indicate a bias, ignorance or agenda on the part of television writers and producers? Is there a social imperative for these shows to help educate our society and help support real life victims?

Have a thought or question to add? The conversation can continue by contacting the wsh-webmaster@uwc.edu.
