Memes and Representations of Race: An Analysis of Historical Representations of Welfare
Mia Moody-Ramirez is Professor and Chair of Baylor University's Department of Journalism, Public Relations and New Media. She joined Baylor in 2001, and has maintained an active research portfolio in addition to her teaching and leadership roles. Her research emphasizes media framing of people of color, women, and other underrepresented groups. She has conducted research about the portrayal of minority women in the media, reality television, racial stereotyping of women in rap music, the pros and cons of using social media in political campaigns, and the continuing stereotyping of a small East Texas town more than a decade after a hate crime in which a Black man was dragged to his death behind a pickup truck. She has presented papers at numerous regional, national, and international conferences, and has been published in Public Relations Review, Journalism Educator, Journal of Magazine & New Media Research, among others.
