Description:

This course explores the relationship between gender, journalism, and culture, both historically and currently. It examines the role of the news media in reinforcing and/or challenging prevailing stereotypes and attitudes about gender. The course will focus on producers of journalism and as subjects of media portrayals. We will place those topics in broader perspective by delving a bit into gender theory, popular culture, and political communication. Together we will contend with the ways gender matters in news today—a question that invites many kinds of answers.
