COMM 2181 Gender, Identity, and Sexuality (Fall: 3 )
This course offers an introduction to the field queer media studies, focusing on several key genres, directors, and themes within transnational queer media cultures and scholarship. We’ll explore what makes a particular film or television program "queer" and what role media production, distribution, exhibition, and reception play in the process. We’ll examine constructions of sexuality, gender, race, and nation in a variety of texts and contexts, and investigate how transnational queer media can both participate in and resist dominant notions of sexuality, imperialism, race, gender, politics, and community.
