FEMINISM & POP CULTURE

Wednesday, Jan. 17 to Wednesday Feb. 28, 2017

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.

Your only homework is watching a documentary, film, or television episode prior to each class!
