Description: Amy Villarejo has famously asked media scholars to consider what television can think, what it is possible to think on television, not just about television, for we are live as television is, we live life as and through television. This seminar takes up these questions in relation to race, queerness, and disabilities, with readings by Villarejo, Kristen J. Warner, Beretta E. Smith-Shomade, Rebecca Wanzo, Quinn Miller, J. Hollis Griffin, Mary Beltran, Banjamin M. Han, and others. Our topics will include digital technologies, identity and desire, viewing practices, queer temporalities, consumption, colorblind casting, postfeminism, postracism, and fandom.
WGSST 8800.04 - Topics in Feminist Studies
Professor Wendy Smooth
Mo 2:15pm - 5:00pm
Class number 29447
Description: In this course, we will take a retrospective look at the 2020 elections with particular attention to the many narratives that emerged during the election cycle and the groups targeted for these messages. We will explore the extent to which these messages reflect the nature of gender, race, class, and difference politics in America. We will ask a series of questions including: Why did these narratives emerge at this time? Where did they come from? Why do they resonate so powerfully with certain groups of the electorate? Given the historic significance of this presidential election, we must also explore whether this historic moment represents a long-term shift in American politics and culture.
