Instructions (contains spoilers): For this assignment, you will be required to read an article and answer a series of questions based on course material. In the article, Role of the Media in Promoting the Dehumanization of People Who Use Drugs, Habib and colleagues (2023) discuss several ways that the media dehumanizes people who use drugs and the consequences of such depictions.

Using Haslam’s cubic model of dehumanization, identify different types of dehumanization presented in the article.

How can the information from the article lead to dehumanization by default? What outcomes may result from the dehumanization by default process of people who use drugs?

How does the information from the article relate to the associative process of human categorization? What results may be a consequence of these associations?

What functions may dehumanizing people who use drugs serve?

How do other factors (e.g., race/ethnicity, sex/gender) influence the media portrayals of people who use drugs? Using material from throughout the course, how may we understand the significant impact from these factors?
