Inhoud
Priority rules apply to this course. Make sure you register for this course before June 15, 12.00 noon to be considered for enrollment.
The following students are guaranteed a place:
  • BA TCS or LAS;
  • students who are registered for the minor Gender Studies;
  • pre-master’s students;
  • exchange students.
Other students will be placed by means of random selection.

The aim of this interdisciplinary course is to develop and practice a critical way of looking at contemporary cultural practices. In these practices of production, dissemination and reception, masculinity and femininity are permanently (re)constructed, just as are concepts of class, race, ethnicity, and geopolitical location.
We will be studying cultural practices in various manifestations: popular culture (e.g. soaps, advertising, music icons) but also the cultural logic underlying art practice and visual ethnographic research. In all these sites old and new identities are being contested and reconstructed. The interaction between text and image will be main point of focus.

This course is the second course in the minor Gender Studies, for more information about this minor see http://students.uu.nl/en/node/351/gender-studies.

LAS and TCS students who follow this course as part of the core curriculum of their major (hoofdrichting Postcolonial and Gender Studies) are required to complete one of the following compulsory preparation courses: Introduction to Gender Studies (blok 3), Gender, etniciteit en cultuurkritiek (blok 1) or Gender, Ethnicity and Cultural Critique (blok 1). See https://tcs.sites.uu.nl/ for more information.
