Keynote: Nancy Wang Yuen, Ph.D.

#MeToo: Racism & Sexism in Hollywood and Beyond

NWangYuen

#MeToo has exploded on social media, as women speak out against sexual exploitation in Hollywood and beyond. In this interactive workshop, Dr. Yuen will break down how sexism and racism play out in Hollywood and relate it to our everyday lived experiences.

Nancy Wang Yuen, Ph.D., is a sociologist, documentary producer and pop culture geek. She is the author of Reel Inequality: Hollywood Actors and Racism (2016), the first book to examine the barriers actors of color face in Hollywood and how they creatively challenge stereotypes. She also pioneered the first study of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders on television (2005-6) and the 10-year followup study, Tokens on the Small Screen: Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders on Prime Time and streaming Television (2017).

Nancy is an expert scholar and speaker on race and media, appearing on BBC WorldTV, NPR, Los Angeles Times, and Washington Post. She is a regular contributor to Self.com and the Huffington Post. She is an Associate Professor and the Chair of the Sociology Department at Biola University.
