Cursusdoelen
  • Students will be introduced to critical studies of modern media culture with a focus on sexuality.
  • Students will be able to identify and analyse developments in the representation of sexuality in contemporary media culture using insights from current media and sexuality studies.
  • Students will obtain knowledge of various evaluations of these developments and will be able to critically discus these.
Inhoud

The emergence of (post)modern media culture has made many commentators worry: this culture is seen as superficial, sensationalist, immoral and relativistic. Concerning the representation of sexuality in contemporary media culture these worries seem to be even stronger. In this course we discuss various developments in the representation of sexuality in contemporary media culture and their interpretation and evaluation by scholars of the media and sexuality. Are we living in the age of an immoral and dangerous ‘pornification' of media culture or an age in which access to the innocent pleasures of (representations of) sexuality is finally open to all?
