What is the relationship between feminism and the screen? This course will be a preliminary investigation of this question. Wewill inquire into what feminism can offer our imagination of media technologies and practices. And how feminist practice informs, contests, and re-creates the interface.

This is a journey that will take us from the history of medicine to Hollywood, to the digital age, in the search for the nature of the image, and the history of gender.

As a result, this course will prepare students foradvanced work in media studies, history, and science studies. We will also emphasize the close relationship between concepts and practices, interrogating both together.

This course should appeal to students interested in media studies, feminism, and science technology studies.

Class attendance and participation will comprise 20% of you grade.

There will be one 5-7 page, doublespaced, essays responding to themes in the class, that will comprise 30% of your grade.

One final project (a 10-15 page paper or its equivalent) including a classroom presentation. This will comprise 50% of your grade.
The project will entail choosing a visual artifact and discussing it in relation to the dominant themes of the course.
