Queerness in Media Education

Group Media Psychology publishes in merz

The abundance of gender and sexual identities has recently become much more visible in society. Digital media in particular have contributed to this development. They make it possible to comprehensively present identities to the public that are at best marginalized in the mass media. The effects are ambivalent: the visibility of queerness in the media goes hand in hand with empowerment, but also with increasing anti-queerness. How should media education deal with the situation? Prof. Döring from the Media Psychology and Media Design Group at Technische Universität Ilmenau presents the current state of research on queerness in media education. The article has been published in merz – Zeitschrift für Medienpädagogik.

Complex scientific questions and problems can often not be solved from the perspective of a single science alone. Interdisciplinarity, i.e. interdisciplinary cooperation, is therefore of great importance. Both inter-department cooperation at the TU Ilmenau and beyond its borders bundle competences and are an indispensable part of research at the IfMK.
