Gender Studies | Seminar in Gender Studies: The Gay Visibility
G498 | 12663 | Walters

Examines the explosion of visibility of lesbian and gays from the
mid 1980s to the present, focusing on US popular culture
(particularly film and television).   This transformation in
cultural representations will be examined in the larger context of
changing political frameworks and contestations for power.  Focus
will be on the political implications of a new cultural world where
sexual minorities are increasingly visible and "spectacularized."
