GAWS 202 - Visible Bodies and the Politics of Sexuality

First Semester. This course considers how visual culture produces and contests concepts of sexuality in American society. We will analyze how mainstream culture depicts and 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. This class fulfills the feminist theory recommendation for the major.
