Description:

The Gender and Media Reader is the first comprehensive, interdisciplinary anthology of the best known and most influential writings in gender and media studies. It is an essential text for those interested in the development of gender and media studies, its primary topics, debates, and theoretical approaches. In contrast to most other readers edited by feminist media scholars, The Gender and Media Reader is not sex-specific; it examines media culture in relation to males and masculinity as well as females and femininity, while also paying close attention to the many other identities that intersect with gender, particularly race and sexuality. Moreover, unlike many readers edited by media scholars, The Gender and Media Reader is not medium specific; it explores gender through a variety of increasingly convergent media forms, including film, music, radio, television, magazines, advertising, music videos, video games, and the Internet.The primary objective of The Gender and Media Reader is to expand readers’ knowledge of how gender operates within media culture through their engagement with classic, foundational writings upon which contemporary studies in this area are based. Taking a multiperspectival approach that considers gender broadly and examines media texts alongside their production and consumption, The Gender and Media Reader will enable readers’ critical thinking about how gender is constructed, contested, and subverted in different sites within media culture. In addition to collecting key works in the field, the anthology will include introductions to each section that facilitate readers’ understanding of the development of gender and media studies by contextualizing the various topics, debates, and theoretical approaches that have shaped it, as well as by highlighting current trends.
