Description
Our ideas about race and gender shape and are shaped by popular culture including the internet, music, television, film, newspapers, magazines, and the arts. Every community member both consumes and helps to create popular culture. In this course, students will explore the ways that gender, race, and related concepts are portrayed in popular culture. In so doing, students will develop a greater awareness of themselves as both consumers and producers of culture as well as an understanding of gender and race as "social constructs" that interact with each other and with other aspects of identity, such as sexual orientation and social class.
