GSFS 202 - Visible Bodies and the Politics of Sexuality

Semester Offered: Second Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4HU, WINT

This course considers how visual culture produces and contests concepts of sexuality in American society. We will analyze how mainstream culture universalizes certain experiences of gender and sexuality, as they are inflected by race, ethnicity, class and nationalism, as well as how marginalized groups have used visual representation to contest and subvert these hegemonic ideals. Through case studies, we will explore concepts such as the gaze, spectacle, and agency.

Enrollment Limit: 30
Instructor: W. Kozol

Cross List Information: This course is cross-listed with CAST 202
