Media Identities - MAS302

This unit introduces students to key models used to investigate a range of identities in relation to media and communications. It covers major feminist theoretical perspectives as well as recent approaches to masculinity, sexuality and race. These approaches are applied to media forms and practices including film, print media, news, advertising, sports journalism and the internet. The unit has an emphasis on the Australian media milieu and covers concepts of identity in terms of self-realisation, social media spaces, representational practices and processes of gender mediation.
