Description

This course explores the way the human body is portrayed within, and influenced by, commercial and social media. Built on a foundation of original social scientific studies and book chapters, the course covers a wide range of issues divided into five segments: the ideal body, the sexual body, the body of color, the athletic body, and the audience body. Gender is not the focus of the course but appears as a theme throughout the segments.

Class Format:

Lecture twice weekly for 1.5 hours each, discussion once weekly for 1.0 hours.
