Subject outline

In this unit students consider how gender and sexuality have been represented in the media and how these representations have been theorised. Attention is paid to feminist interventions in media debates about gender and sexuality, as well as emerging developments in the theorisation of masculinity and representation. Some of the issues addressed include advertising and consumerism, the representation of the body, and the gendered appeal of popular culture, including wrestling, the action film, women and war, comedy and pornography. Attendance at and participation in 80% of tutorials is required for students to pass this subject.
