INTRO TO GENDER & MEDIA
UNIT-2: HYPER FEMININITY & TOXIC MASCULINITY
This is a modified, online version of the classes taught by Alicia Swiz at Harold Washington College. The goals of this course are to develop an understanding of gender and gender roles, increase media literacy and engage with feminist theory. The course is comprised of 6 units (2 weeks each) in which students are assigned readings, a media viewing, & discussion questions. Participants are given access to a video lecture and slide presentation by Professor Alicia Swiz and each unit culminates with a class dialogue via video chat.
A content only option is available for those interested in the readings and screenings but unable to participate in the group dialogues. Click here.
