The Media, Gender and Culture course at King's College London takes an innovative and dynamic approach and addresses some of the most pressing issues and critical debates in the field of modern cultural studies.


About the course

  • Through text and media, you explore contemporary representations of gender and analyse the political and social contexts behind them.
  • Indicative topics covered by this Media, Gender and Culture course at King's College London include queer theory, intersectionality, postfeminism and feminism in art.
  • Theoretical work in these areas is complemented by exploration of a wide range of media, from film to music.
  • What role does media play in the formation of gendered subjectivities? How does media organise social and cultural life? What is the sexualisation of culture, and what does it mean for contemporary gender relations? How can we approach critical issues of power and agency in the analysis of post-feminism? Can media be used as a resource for contemporary cultural politics and activism? By whom, and in what ways? Media, gender and culture will explore these and other questions, introducing students to critical debates in the interdisciplinary domains of gender studies, cultural theory and media analysis.
