Gender Studies | Gender Dimensions of Cultural Production & Criticism
G602 | 25469 | Weber, B


This course evaluates a diverse array of arguments concerning the
gendered nature of cultural production and criticism. Controversies
related to gender dimensions of aesthetics, and of cultural
meanings, content, or genres receive examination, as well as vested
claims about the constitution of genius or creativity, and the role
of identity and race in cultural production. The critical issue of
theorizing audience/reader/viewer and the often gendered nature of
cultural criticism warrant particular scrutiny, especially in a
cross-cultural frame.
