Gender, Sexuality and Popular Culture surveys the making and meaning
of masculinity, femininity and sexuality in popular culture.
Emphasizing ways in which the form and technology of popular culture
have changed during the twentieth century, the course explores
fiction, theater, cinema, music, television, journalism and other mass
media with respect to gender and sexuality. Issues interrogated
include: gender and the power of the image; sex and spectatorship;
melodrama, film noir and "the women's film"; rock music women, MTV;
race, age and representation; and violence, masculinity, and
pornography.
