Your task is to choose a current (e.g., in the last 12 months) television program or a film and conduct a content analysis that identifies the stereotypical portrayals used by the producers to condemn or endorse specific lifestyle choices.

  • Choose one of the major characters in the movie or TV program you’ve selected.
  • Describe their physical appearance; are they made to look attractive?
  • What role does this person play in the story? Is it stereotypical? Are they effective in that role?
  • What is this person’s job? Is it stereotypical? Are they successful in their job?
  • Describe two or three specific actions taken by this person.
  • What was the outcome of each action? Was it positive or negative?
  • Do the actions/outcomes reinforce a stereotype?
  • Is the stereotype positive or negative?
  • How likeable and/or intelligent is this person?
  • How desirable is this person’s lifestyle?
  • What are ways to mitigate the stereotyping portrayal you identified in your content analysis?

Be sure your analysis is informed by social psychology theory and research.
