How have feminisms both critiqued and transformed mainstream popular culture?
This six week seminar about Feminism & Pop Culture takes place in my living room in Edmonton, Alberta.
We will be talking about pop culture as a space where multiple and often contradictory messages and myths about gender circulate.
Tuesday nights from 6:30 to 8:30 pm.
Optional readings are provided and there are no assignments. I bake delicious treats for every class.
Your only homework is watching a documentary, film, or television episode prior to each class!
