How do the gendered identities in the popular culturetexts we engage with influence how we understand our ourselves and our world? This course takes an interdisciplinary look to examine popular culture’s representations of gender and gendered identities. Students will analyze a variety of popular culture texts from global and intersectional perspectives in order to evaluate, assess, and create spaces of resistance for gender and gendered identities in today’s popular culture.
