By Any Media Necessary: Mapping Youth and Participatory Politics

Media About Race and Ethnicity

Socially constructed categories such as race, ethnicity, nationality, and other markers of identity change over time and context, and are continually contested and negotiated interpersonally, institutionally, and systemically through political struggle. These identity markers intertwine with others (such as Gender and Sexuality) in playing a fundamental role in organizing our societies, shaping access to social, educational, and political resources, and impacting how we see ourselves and interact with each other.

The media in this section engage with topics such as racial, ethnic, collective and national identity, voice, and representation, counter narratives, precarious publics, discrimination, institutional and systemic oppression, the multiplicity and intersectionality of identities, and coalition-building.
