WMST 240 - Gender in Popular Media

Semester Offered: Fall
1 unit(s)
(Same as MEDS 240 ) Topic for 2020/21a: Through the analysis of a range of media including film, television, advertising, music and digital culture, along with the reading of a number of critical and theoretical texts, we interrogate the way that gender is constructed, represented and consumed in American popular media. An interdisciplinary combination of feminist theory, queer theory, media studies and cultural studies provide the tools for critical inquiry into the production and performance of gender and sexual identities and help us consider their various intersections with race, class, ethnicity and dis/ability. Students learn to meaningfully and critically engage with these popular forms to become discerning cultural consumers and creators. Anne Brancky.
