Laura Chapman: TCM Reviews Bias in Films

Interesting essay samples and examples on: https://essays.io/dissertation-examples-samples/

Here is an excellent suggestion from our reader Laura Chapman, whose original research and writing will always find a home here. We have already missed the first Thursday but perhaps TCM will do reruns:

For adults who are fans of Turner Classic Movies, TCM has introduced programing to examine stereotypes in films. This is in addition to programing on women who have and are making films, and many rarely seen films for Black history month.

The TCM experts for the current effort do not mince words and they use clips from many films (older and newer) that depict, for example, male violence against women as if perfectly acceptable, the slaughter of American Indians and ersatz appropriations of native clothing, black actors cast in yes-suh roles, white actors pretending to be black and so on.

This link shows which movies have been selected, the schedule for critical commentary about them, and introduces the experts in film and film studies who will be on camera for the series.
