Story progress by Mac Pham

My story topic is intersectional representation in the media. Originally, my main focus was going to be researching sources that provided qualitative data on media misrepresentation. But after speaking to my human sources, I was provided with general information from a quantitative standpoint. So, I decided to break down my story into misrepresentation, as well as underrepresentation in the media. I continued to do more research, this time looking for data and numbers that showed underrepresentation of marginalized groups on television screens.

As I was initially building this story, I integrated data of minorities being misrepresented in the media. Ironically enough, I realized that I did not represent other intersectional identities in my story. So, I continued to do more research and I was able to add data of people with a disability, as well as data for the LBGTQ+ community being misrepresented in the media. After making these adjustments, I think I provided a good balance of qualitative and quantitative data while highlighting various intersectional identities. In terms of perspective, I talked to two sources that taught a class that heavily focuses on studying media representation, as well as a source that is a student with experience of studying media representation. I included one source that is a first person article that spoke about the experience of being underrepresented in the media as a minority.
