BLS 348: Representing Women

Focuses on women as the producers, consumers, and subjects of visual culture. Course materials center on the visual arts and the Feminist art movement, yet also engage Feminist critiques of film, television, advertising, and other forms of popular culture. Analyzing the representations of women in these media, the course asks questions about the significance of visual representation to political representation and to women’s rights.
