TAI Student Studies Distorted Beauty

TAI Student Jazmin Vazquez presented her Engaged Learning Project titled, “Distorted Beauty: Advertising and Women’s Self Concepts in the U.K. and U.S.,”on January 28, 2015 at Hughes-Trigg.  Her mentor Dr. Carrie La Ferle elaborated briefly about the project stating, “Jazmin was awarded funding to undertake research last year in the U.K. focusing on advertising regulation in the UK and the portrayal of women in advertisements.”  Vazquez’s findings “reveal that the more strict regulation of advertising in the UK of ‘soft issues’ may make women in the UK less persuaded by ads and the ads were found less believable than their American counterparts. In the end though, Jazmin believes soft issues such as stereotypes in ads and objectification of women in ads should be regulated more in the US and other parts of the world,” reported La Ferle.

Please join the Temerlin Advertising Institute in congratulating Jazmin Vazquez on this outstanding achievement.
