CINE 492 - Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Representation in Popular Media

COMM 430 | GSOC 430
401 |Katherine Sender |M 2-5pm

This class investigates the history of LGBT representation in a range of popular media since the 1960s—in film, television, music, pornography, the internet, video games, and so on. We will consider on-going debates about queer images, including stereotypes, camp, and the value and limits of “positive images.” The class includes a strong emphasis on independent research: students will learn how to develop and carry out an original qualitative research project throughout the semester.
