Explore TWO of the following magazines:
Allure Bazaar Cosmopolitan Ebony Elle Esquire Essence Glamour GQ InStyle Latina Marie Claire Men’s Health StyleWatchTeen Vogue Vanidades Vogue or another similar fashion/beauty-related magazine(note – you may use actual hard copies of the magazines and can find them in grocery stores libraries and bookstores; or you may google these magazines and explore their websites).
Then respond to the following:
1. Briefly state which two magazines you explored and the main target audiences of each.
2. In examining images advertisements and articles in each magazine discuss what – if any – racial or ethnic stereotypes were present. Were there examples of cultural racism in the magazines?What would you estimate to be the racial and ethnic makeup shown – that is what percentage of people appear to be White Black Hispanic Asian Middle Eastern and so on? Finally do you feel that magazines should be more integrated or is there a use in magazines remaining segregated – that is having separate magazines for different ethnic and racial groups?

You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.
