        Dr. Travis Dixon, professor in the College of Communications, is a media effects scholar dedicated to investigating the prevalence of stereotypes in the mass media and the impact of stereotypical imagery on audience members. He has been honored as a faculty fellow with the Center on Democracy in a Multiracial Society and as an invited fellow of the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences at Stanford University. Much of Dr. Dixon's work has been focused on racial stereotyping in television news. His more recent investigations examine the content and effects of stereotypes and counter-stereotypes in major news events, online news, and musical contexts.
