Credits: 3

In this three credit media elective course, students will use a critical eye to examine race, gender, class and power structures through an often overlooked pop-culture archetype: The female villain. From Batman’s Harley Quinn to Rose from Jordan Peele’s Get Out, we will not only examine the ways in which female villains get written, but how we, as pop-culture consumers, view them.
