POV 5 (Digital media)

George Gerbner’s Cultivation Theory posits that media exposure leads us to “cultivate” certain perceptions, but it’s not immediate, it’s gradual, cumulative, and significant.

What have you “cultivated” from TV and other media? Write at least two paragraphs that explainhow media have shaped your perception of any of the following:

  • Gender roles (what it means to be a man or woman)
  • Race & Ethnicity (white, black, Asian, Latino, Mid-East)
  • Countries
  • Sub-cultures
  • Terrorists
  • Disabled people
  • Old people
  • Hip Hop or Rap artists
  • Gays, Lesbians, Transgender, Bi-Sexual, others
  • Republicans and Democrats (Conservatives and Liberals)
  • Activists and Protestors
  • Americans
  • Hackers
  • Religions (Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, Christianity, Mormon, Scientologists)
  • Homeless people

Discuss which media portrayals or messages influenced your view – was it TV shows, characters, websites, video games, cartoons, or news reports? Discuss how it happened.
