Women and Islam in the Middle East (3) Middle Eastern women are routinely portrayed in the media as oppressed, and Islam is frequently cited as the source of such oppression. This course examines how accurate this depiction of women in the region is and what constitutes oppression if women in Morocco, Tunisia, Algeria, Lebanon, and Egypt had the right to vote before the female citizens of Switzerland. The course explores such questions through key issues pertaining to women and Islam in the Middle East. Students are exposed to the ways in which religion, culture, history, and social contexts have all contributed to current views and practices in the Middle East. Meets with AWST-396 001.

The Gay 80s (3) The 1980s signaled a renewed emergence of gays and lesbians in mainstream America. Challenged as never before by the menace and stigma of Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome (AIDS), the path of the modern Gay and Lesbian Movement and the perception of its community was recast. This course follows the history of gay and lesbian activism through this transformative decade, as the community mobilized to fight the epidemic and became increasingly visible and involved in American culture, entertainment, media, and politics.

Gender and Media (3) This seminar uses a feminist, interdisciplinary lens to undertake a theoretically informed analysis of how media influence American conceptions of identity(ies), including race, class, gender, and sexuality. Drawing on concepts from feminist theory, queer theory, critical race theory, and media theory students examine how marginalized groups are represented, or not represented, in contemporary popular media. The primarily focus is on how consolidated media institutions shape what we see in movies, television, music, and advertising. The role of social media as an alternative media space to corporate-led media messaging is also explored. Meets with WGSS-696 001.
