Exam Type: No Exam
This reading group examines mass media depictions and images in the modern era. It situates this loaded imaging process within an appropriate social and historical context while considering how the quest to maintain a normalized national identity competes with evolving notions of race, culture and gender. Such imaging --commonly a dual process involving contestation between a group's projected image and one being projected upon them -- will be discussed through literature, journalism and visual media.
Note: This reading group will meet on the following dates: 2/6, 2/13, 2/27, 3/13, 4/3, 4/17.
Drop Deadline: February 7, 2019 by 11:59 pm EST
