Featured Book: Unnatural Selection
"Asia now has 163 million females 'missing' from its population. Gender imbalance reaches far beyond Asia, affecting Georgia, Eastern Europe, and cities in the U.S. where there are significant immigrant populations. The world, therefore, is becoming increasingly male, and this mismatch is likely to create profound social upheaval."

Sample Topic: Symbolic Annihilation
"Symbolic annihilation is used to highlight the erasure of peoples in popular communication. George Gerbner coined the term to describe the absence, condemnation, or trivialization of a particular group in the media. Generally applied to women and racial and sexual minorities, symbolic annihilation points to the ways in which poor media treatment can contribute to social disempowerment and in which symbolic absence in the media can erase groups and individuals from public consciousness." -- The International Encyclopedia of Communication, 2008
