London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE)

Course Introduction

The programme employs a gender perspective to critically examine such questions as how representations in the media may reinforce or subvert social roles and ideologies; how gendered forms of address and identification have been theorised across different visual and print cultures; the role of a variety of media forms in critiquing or contributing to wider social processes such as globalisation, conflict and migration. Students are encouraged to interrogate a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches to the gendered analysis of contemporary media and culture. In addition to the core units in gender theory, media and communication and gender and media representation students can choose from a range of options in the 2 departments.
