COMM 305 RACE, CLASS, AND GENDER IN MEDIA
This course explores how issues of race, class, sexuality, and gender are mediated by, and organize our experience of, film and television from technological specifications to issues of narrative and political economy. We will approach these issues through two critical lenses. First, we will encounter the core theoretical concepts developed by film and media scholars, Marxist activists, and pioneers in the fields of critical race theory, queer theory, and third-wave feminism. Second, we will investigate how these and other concepts have been taken up, modified, and challenged by popular critics, lay audiences, and fan subcultures in order to both embrace and deconstruct the media they consume.
