The Gender and Women's Studies Program's second Dana Shugar Colloquium lecture will be given by Dr. Yinjiao "Joy" Ye (COMM). Her talk will focus on the portrayal of illness and related matters in two popular TV shows, including Grey’s Anatomy and ER. Dr. Ye will explore how these shows portray causes of various illnesses and diseases, how they are diagnosed and treated, as well as whether they mention the prevention of these conditions. Further, the implications of these results are discussed in association with power, gender, and the like.
Dr. Ye is an associate professor in the Department of Communication Studies at URI. Her primary research interests are focused on health communication in media and health-related marketing communication.
