    Course Description and Goals
    This course is designed to help students be familiar with an intellectual history of feminist approaches to media studies while dealing with a range of theories and methods for the study of popular/media culture. Among the issues, we will consider gendered representation, audience analysis, post-feminism, media production and gender, and the implications of globalization and technological development for the construction of gender(s). We will discuss those issues tracing the key changes in feminist theory, which are closely associated with the major changes in broader philosophical and sociological thinking.
