(New) Media & Marginalized Bodies

This course examines representations of marginalized bodies in media. We begin with an analysis of mediated presentations of marginalized groups over time, including theories associated with their coverage and its relative impact and representations over time. Within this syllabus and throughout the course, we will use the term (re)presentation to indicate both the presentation of bodies and the representation of culture and bodies. It is important to note the difference between these two interrelated and interconnected terms. Through a critical socio-historical lens, we will interrogate patterns, differences, and new forms of (re)presentation in media and new media.
