Description

This course offers an exploration of the role of the mass media in today's society from a cultural studies perspective. Issues surrounding gender, race, and class are given special emphasis; other categories, such as age, family, and ability, are also considered. Attention is given to various theories that explain the relationship between mediated depictions of society and cultural ideas about different groups within society, and structural inequalities within society. Three lecture hours per week. Fall semester only.

This class has minimum technical requirements.
