‘UnREAL’: Making and unmaking gender, race and power for TV

Wednesday, November 1, 2017 - 7:00pm Ryan Stark Family Theatre, 900 West 34th Street, Los Angeles, CA 90089

The Peabody Award-winning Lifetime series UnREAL, about the complex relationship between two female producers of a reality dating competition show, has been lauded for its searing, compulsively watchable take on feminism, race, fantasy and media. Join us for an evening of conversation about identity, female competition and what it means to make television today with UnREAL co-creator/executive producer Sarah Gertrude Shapiro, executive producer/showrunner Stacy Rukeyser, USC professors Karen Tongson and Henry Jenkins, and some of the stars of UnREAL.

Presented by USC Visions and Voices: The Arts and Humanities Initiative. Organized by Karen Tongson (English, Gender Studies, and American Studies and Ethnicity) and Henry Jenkins (Communication and Cinematic Arts).
