• Instructor: Voichita Nachescu

In this course, we explore contemporary digital media as sites of production of gender, race, and sexuality. Inspired by intersectional theory and cyberfeminism, we examine Twitter, blogs, and podcasts as environments where race / gender /sexuality / are produced, negotiated, and subverted. We critically interrogate the ways new technologies often reinscribe power relations, discipline, and surveillance, and we explore the possibilities and limits of online activism.

Students will work collaboratively to create a podcast based on their research on a topic of their choice.
