|COURSE DESCRIPTION:||Through examples from Canada, American, and "global"
culture, we will study the tremendous influence that popular culture,
in the form of music, films, televisions, print media, and
communication technologies, has on our identities, perceptions, values,
and everyday lives. This course considers how popular culture provides
us with the scripts to practice femininities, masculinities, and
sexualities, and how these practices are infused with race and class.
It also examines how we exchange knowledge about race and gender
through popular culture.
