WMST 291 - Gender, Race, and Sexuality in Popular Culture 3 s.h.


This course addresses how popular culture - film, television, music, mass and digital media - reinforces conceptions of gender and sexuality, race, and class. Using methodologies of gender, sexuality, and media studies, as well as critical race theory, we will examine the popular production, consumption, and reception of gendered social relations and roles. The course emphasizes critical inquiry regarding the production of normative and alternative gender and sexual identities, while noting their intersection with multiple, complex categories of identity, including most notably race, ethnicity, class, and nationality. A-E Only.
