COMM 220 - Communication, Gender and Culture
This course explores gender as a cultural communication practice that simultaneously reflects and enacts the culture in which it occurs. That is, gender is positioned as something that we do—via communication— rather than what we are. In order to understand and consider critically gender as communication, this course examines the difference between sex and gender, the intersection of gender and culture, and theories of how we become gendered. We will examine the ways in which social and political meanings attached to gender are communicated in various cultural institutions, practices, and contexts; and we will also consider how issues such as identity, representation, race, sexuality, class, and power bear on gender.
