The course addresses the theory, practice and representation of politics in the media from a gendered perspective. In particular, the course critically analyses the role of the media in structuring and reproducing power relations in contemporary society. We will ask questions such as: how do media representations of gender become political? Do the media reinforce or subvert social roles and ideologies? What is the role of the media in gendering political and social processes? How is gender mediated? And why does this mediation become a political concern?
We will examine political theories of gender and media and discuss the the influence of gender on politics through an examination of different context. We are interested in conceptualizations of femininity and masculinity as well as the history of feminism and struggles for gendered and racial equality. Engaging with a range of contemporary political debates and controversies, we examine the role of gender in political communication, celebritisation, voting and fandom as well as digital media and popular culture. We consider gender in the context of nationalism and imperialism, as well policy making and social protest.
Students are encouraged to reflect upon theories, debates and controversies that reveal the interplay between gender, politics and the media and to apply a variety of theoretical and methodological approaches to the gendered analysis of contemporary media, politics, culture and society.
Week 6 Affective Politics: Women as Leaders and Women as Voters (guest lecturer: Emma Blackett)
Tutorial Participation and Reading Response: 10%
Case Study: 25%
Exam: 40 %
The University of Auckland's expectation is that students spend 10 hours per week on a 15-point course, including time in class and personal study. Students should manage their academic workload and other commitments accordingly. Deadlines for coursework are set by course convenors and will be advertised in course material. You should submit your work on time. Late assignments without a pre-approved extension will be penalised by loss of marks (1 mark/point per day). There should be a good reason for seeking an extension (e.g. illness, family emergency, etc.) and it will be up to your tutor or the lecturer to determine whether your situation warrants more time for the assignment. In general, we can only help you, if we know what is going on, so please come and talk to us.
