Race and Popular Culture

COMN 2220 - 4 credits

Dates: November 21 - December 21*
Instructor: Bernadette Calafell
  *This is an online cours

Description:  This course examines trajectories of representations of race in popular culture (i.e., film, music, television), both produced by the dominant culture, as well as self-produced by various racial and ethnic groups. Through a historical perspective, we trace images in popular culture and how those images are tied to contemporary events of the time. Students will pay particular attention not only to the specific archetypes that exist, but also how those archetypes are nuanced or colored differently through the lenses of ethnicity, nationality, race, class, gender, and sexuality. This course will be taught entirely online. 

Course Attributes:  In the process of being approved as an  Arts and Humanities Foundation, Analytical Inquiry: Society
