Title : WGS.111 Gender and Media Studies: Women and the Media (MIT)

Description : This course examines representations of race, class, gender, and sexual identity in the media.

In addition, we will examine how gender and race affects the production of media, and discuss the impact of new media and digital media and how it has transformed access and participation, moving contemporary media users from a traditional position of "readers" to "writers" and/or commentators. Students will analyze gendered and racialized language and embodiment as it is produced online in blogs and vlogs, avatars, and in the construction
