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 Beyoncs has played in extending its popularity to a female audience.
