AFST 347 - Gender, Race, and Media

(3.00)
In this course, we define media and analyze intersecting formations of gender, race, class, and sexuality, as produced through a range of media genres and forms. These include, but are not limited to, advertisements and commercials, television and film, music and music videos, visual arts, and digital visual cultures. We interrogate media as powerful, pervasive sites where dynamic relations between dominant representations and resistant subject formations are staged. As consumers and producers of media, we learn to articulate the entanglement of social justice concerns, politics, and cultural and economic resources. We practice tools of critical reading and thinking, such as textual analysis, visual discourse analysis, and the basics of media literacy.
