CAST 235 - Debating Citizenships

FC SSCI CD WINT
4 credits
Americans have long hailed innovations in media technologies as democratic spaces even as commentators criticize popular culture for sustaining normative ideals of citizenship. This interdisciplinary course explores popular media from the radio to the Internet as formative sites for contested ideals of citizenship, with particular attention to changing notions of gender, sexuality, race, ability, and class. We will examine the intersections of popular culture and legal discourse to address issues of belonging, visibility, and marginalization.
