COM/WS 374
Women and Media in the United States
Focus: This course examines the ways in which the media as form of entertainment and as social institution shape our ideas about what a woman is.  We will consider the images of women in a variety of media as well as their roles in various media institutions.  The course will assess the ways in which these images and roles shape women's experiences and are shaped by them.  We will cover the negative images and roles as ways in which people have tried to change them.
