FYS 046 Gender, Sexuality, and Media

Gender and sexuality are socially-constructed identities-learned and reinforced by interactions with others as well as the systems we create. In essence, how do we come to identify as a male, female, transgender, gender-fluid, homosexual, heterosexual, bisexual, pansexual, or as none of these things? This course will encourage participants to explore how one specific system, the media, helps us to create our gendered and sexualized selves.
