Queer Identities & Media

Fall 2019

Taught By: Cyril Ghosh

Section: A

CRN: 7488

Credits: 3

How have transnational and postcolonial gender/queer identities emerged - and been constructed - in the media? To what extent have insights from postcolonial, queer, and transnational feminism gained traction in popular and media discourse around the world? What regulates these speech acts? What incubates them? What governs their intelligibility? To what extent are these discursive practices themselves complicit in reconsolidating the structures they are intended to dismantle? These and other related questions will constitute the objects of our analyses in this course. We will begin by reading scholarly texts on postcolonial, transnational, and queer feminisms. We will then proceed to specific case studies of popular and media discourse on gender/sexuality. These case studies will be drawn from the media markets of the Global North as well as the Global South, particularly, but not exclusively, from the Middle East/West Asia and South Asia.
