Major - Queer Media

GEND 3046  Queer Media


Any 18 credits completed.


GEND 2266


Three hours of lecture per week for one term.




This course will examine both the history of queer visibility, particularly in the US and Canada, as well as the new visibility of gays, lesbians, bisexuals and trans identified people in the media. We will explore these representational shifts in relation to larger societal changes and the tensions that arise when popular visibility of marginalized identities is entangled in commodity culture; when communities of resistance become ""niche markets."" This course may be credited towards English Studies and a Major in Fine Arts (Art History and Visual Studies stream).
