Primary Instructor:

Shakira, Beyonce, Rihanna, Britney Spears… some of the biggest names in our audiovisual popular culture today are women. Their videos and their songs display and inspire a lot of our ways of understanding gender, class, and race. In this class we will think about these songs and videos as arguments that attempt to use language, music and images to construct persuasive models of race, gender, and class, and then use them as springboards to making our own carefully written arguments. To complement the thoughts you already have on the subject, we will also cultivate critical thinking by reading important essays that engage with our primary texts. The exploration of our ways of reading is going to guide us in our approach to producing arguments, close readings, and productive forms of comparison in your written work.
