This course presents an overview of research findings relating to
the representations of women in media content and within media
industries.  We will discuss the social and economic origins of
women in media, as well as how depictions of women in media impact
viewer’s sex role socialization and expectations, body image
concerns, and contributions to gender inequality.  We will look how
women are portrayed in entertainment television and movies,
magazines, music, and video games from a social scientific
perspective. Intersections between gender, race and ethnicity will
also be explored.

This course counts toward Social and Historical Studies distribution
