Each TLC Faculty was asked to create a mini-seminar in response to the following prompt: 
"What problem are you inspired to examine within your discipline, and how do you go about it?"

Mini-Seminar Title: How do media affect teenagers’ well-being?

Instructor: Dr. Susannah Stern

Mini-Seminar Description: Eating disorders, school shootings, low self-esteem, risky sexual behavior, binge drinking... All of these problems have been attributed, at various times, to the negative influence of mass media. But do media really play a role? For the past half century, communication researchers have been inspired to understand the complex relationships young people share with music, television, movies and digital media. What have we learned about how media affect young people’s beliefs and behaviors? How do we know what we know?

Dr. Susannah Stern teaches COMM 265: Introduction to Research.
