Description

This course introduces the study of gender in contemporary U.S. media. It provides you with tools, strategies, and language to critically assess how creative industries construct and otherwise engage with ideas about gender and its intersections with sexuality, race, class, and disability. To do this, we apply concepts and theories to wide-ranging representations and discourses in media culture, from fashion ads and Instagram feeds to romantic comedies, memes, music videos, and more. Assignments offer opportunities for you to analyze media and topics of personal interest. 

Required Texts: Not Required

Class Format:

The course format is two lectures per week, in addition to one GSI-led discussion section per week.
