SOC 904 Women in Popular Culture

From the good mother to the new female action hero, popular culture has given us many messages about women and their lives in the modern–especially urban–world. This course explores the complex ways in which women and popular culture intersect and overlap in our society. Topics include the stereotyping of women as a group in popular culture, the rise of new stereotypes surrounding women, women as consumers of popular culture, women in the city as depicted in popular culture, and women’s location in the media industry as producers. Special attention is given to issues surrounding diversity among women, using Canada as the focus. Lect: 3 hrs. Prerequisite: SOC 104 or SOC 105 or SOC 107 Course Weight: 1.00 Billing Units: 1
