This seminar examines how American visual culture has represented recent U.S. military actions. Ideals of gender, race, and nation often justify militarism, yet visual depictions also provoke anxieties about masculinity and femininity, home, and national, self and other. We will analyze visual media to consider such issues as the symbolic value of female bodies in narratives of national defense and how racial ideals secure or undermine the authority of the male body under attack.
