CMM 330 - Gender and Sex in Pop Culture

Course Cross-listed with GS 330  
3 credit(s)
The portrayal of gender and sexuality in popular culture is analyzed. Media, including television, film, magazines, and the Internet, represent and help construct ideas about what it means to be male and female in this society, as well as convey assumptions about sexual orientation. These portrayals take on a particular form for racial and ethnic minorities that often reinforces prevalent stereotypes. Popular culture also depicts sexuality in a manner that presents certain sexual behavior as natural and acceptable, and other kinds as deviant and unusual. The representation of sexuality in a range of media is explored, including mainstream media, advertising, and pornography. The portrayal of gender and sexuality in the culture is examined through a survey of theoretical perspectives on these topics, as well as a direct examination of content that represents these aspects of humanity.
Prerequisite(s): GS 100  or CMM 110 .
