Trading in Race: The Business of Multicultural Marketing

This panel will examine the effects of ideologies of race and ethnicity on the development and marketing of products and ideas.  How do companies use communication technologies to promote themselves to different cultural communities?  What are the implications of targeted marketing campaigns for the way we think about race and ethnicity?  Additionally, these panelists will consider the impact of social media and instant access to international communities.
