This module explores the relationship of identity expression, representation and management to media technologies. It examines the ways in which different media forms – print, broadcast, the Web and wearable, ubiquitous computing – intersect with, are shaping of and are shaped by identity politics. Students will also explore this dynamic at both individual and group levels. Under the three key themes of community, self, and body, students will engage with various case studies examining how gender, sex, sexuality, race, class, and/or disability are mediated.
