Gender & Visual Culture

Fall 2019

Taught By: Lana Lin

Section: A

CRN: 3841

Credits: 3

Gender and its multifarious manifestations and expressions is crucially linked to visuality. How one is seen or made invisible is the product of evolving gendered power dynamics. In this course we will study representations of gender, asking how gender identities are imposed, resisted, and lived, and what potential role visual culture has in transmitting, shaping, maintaining, and transforming them. Students will analyze gendered and racialized language and depictions within the fields of art, cinema, popular culture, and activism, and will consider how gender and race intersect and are co-constructed. The course provides an introduction to feminist approaches to visual culture, drawing on Black feminism, queer theory, (dis)ability studies, psychoanalysis, journalism, and screen studies.

NOTE: If you have taken NMDS 5117 Gender, Culture & Media, you are advised not to take this course as their content overlaps significantly.
