Political Science Speaker Series – Framed: Media and the Coverage of Race in Canadian Politics

Wednesday, January 17, 2018 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Event Navigation

In a lecture on her award-winning book, Erin Tolley (University of Toronto) argues that race influences electoral news coverage and politics in Canada.  Tolley shows that racial minority politicians receive more negative and less prominent media coverage than their white counterparts. She argues that this is a function of racialized assumptions, institutional biases and organizational norms that undermine Canada’s commitment to inclusive democracy.
