COM 2140 - Race, Gender and Sexuality in Media

3 cr
Media are among our primary sources of images of people, places and things we do not encounter ourselves in our everyday lives. This course examines the images of women and racial and sexual minorities who have been on the fringes of policy development and yet at the center of narratives created by mainstream media. It takes a detailed look at the symbolic and social power of commercial media's role in constructing social and cultural differences around age, gender, race, class and sexuality.
This course counts towards the Aesthetic Understanding Frame of Reference.
Prerequisite: COM 1220  or consent of instructor.
