Content
What is gender? Is it a useful category of analysis? Is it a binary construction? What does measuring gender equality in a global scale mean? What kinds of power relations does that have to do with? How do national mainstream media portray gender roles? Does this representation influence both online and offline gender roles? In this course, we will address all these questions.

The first part will introduce the basics of gender theories, it will work on deconstructing, and critically analyses the key concepts related to gender. Special attention will be paid to gender stereotypes and norms. The second part of the course will focus on gender equality and equity especially related to women. The third and final part will look at gender representations in art and in the media; and at the way in which media shapes gender discourses. Special attention will be given to women in mainstream and social media
