Throughout the 20th century, the imaging of both the sexes and various racial/ethnic groups has heavily influenced the public's perspective of gender relations, racial dynamics, public policy, and even foreign relations. The goal of this course will be to canvass the ongoing shifts in the depictions of men and women in an increasingly diverse culture. As these images are deconstructed, the class will also study the political and social climate in which they were produced. We will investigate whether racialized and gendered images in popular culture reflect historical trends and realities or instead represent stereotypical ideas or fantasies about the nature of social relations in the United States. This course will incorporate political cartoons, comic strips, advertising images, and television/motion pictures to fully explore media-based images and include study trips to the Library of Congress and other collections in Washington, DC.
