  • 2 Units

Section 002

With Barbies sold in 150 countries, McDonalds burgers in 120 and US films shown around the world, American influence on global culture is pronounced. Less attention has been paid to influence on America from abroad. This course examines case studies of foreign media influence (cultural, political, etc.) on the United States. From Cuba’s radical black liberation broadcasts in the 1960s to US fans of K-Pop music in 2019, the course will explore historical and contemporary examples of international media that have made inroads into American popular culture.

Media Studies 190 Special Topics in Media Studies: Gender, Media and Global Popular Culture
  • T, W, Th . 9:30-11:59
  • Meeta Rani jha
  • 140 Barrows Hall
  • 4 Units
  • Class Number 15571

Elective Group C: Theory & Application

The course is a study of global popular culture in five different geopolitical contexts to teach students about gender and sexuality. It takes a Cultural Studies approach to examining the circulation of media images and texts that contribute to the production of transnational identities, cultures, and cultural politics. Using the lenses of ‘gender’, ‘globalization,' 'transnationality,' and 'post-coloniality,' this course will invite students to think critically about the role of media in shaping transnational public cultures and identities.

The aim of the course is to understand the changing meanings of gender and sexuality in transnational media circuits. Gender is a contested organizing category in every society and is reconfigured by social, political, cultural and economic changes. Thus, this course examines the reproduction, maintenance, and negotiation of gender in global media and popular culture and its intersection with constructions of race, ethnicity, nation, class, and sexualities. The course focuses on five case studies: Latin American soaps, known as telenovelas; Bollywood films and the changing constitution of femininities and the global circulation of Hindi songs; the Iranian comedy film, Marmoulak, (The Lizard, Kamel Tabtrizi, 2004) in destabilizing normative masculinity; the Korean wave, known as hallyu and its pivotal role in expanding cosmetic surgery beauty culture in the East Asian region; and finally the global circulation of hip hop youth culture, originating in the U.S., and the key role Beyoncé’s has played in extending its popularity to a female audience.
