The course offers an examination of the images of women in selected advertisements, commercials, magazines, TV programs, films, and art from the 19th century to the present. In addition to analyzing texts, the lecture focuses also on selected cultural practices, such as dieting, bodybuilding, plastic surgery or body modification, to underline the status of the female body as a commodity. While the primary aim of the course is to analyze select images of women, its other aim is to introduce the methodology of contemporary cultural studies, in particular media studies and poststructuralist analyses of ideology.
