First Existentialist Congregation

Dr. Marion Meyers will be the featured speaker at this Sunday’s celebration of Life First E. She will address the topic of “Neoliberalism and the Unraveling of Democracy, and the Social Contract”.

Marian Meyers is a professor in the Department of Communication and an affiliate of the Institute of Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at GSU. Her research interests include the media’s portrayal of women and other socially marginalized groups from an intersectional perspective that views race, class, gender and other markers of social identity as inextricably interconnected. She has published articles or books on topics ranging from the status of
women in higher education, the portrayal of women in the media, and how African American women journalists cover the news. Her most recent scholarly interest is neoliberalism, the effects of neoliberal ideology on democracy, and the dissemination of neoliberal beliefs through mainstream media. Her most recent book, due out in February with Routledge, is “Neoliberalism and the Media”. It explores how the media are complicit in promoting and naturalizing neoliberal ideology.
