Film Representation of Gender

Film Representation of Gender

Choose a current film or television program and discuss in depth the representation of gender in your chosen media text.

Minimal expectation:

5 to 8 pages (double spaced)

Summarize how gender diversity is depicted generally in your chosen text through numbers and percentages of representation of both major and supporting characters.

List the main characters and identify their gender expression.
Use symbolic signifiers including clothing, naming and other signifiers that are used to express gender.

List the supporting characters and identify their gender expression, using the symbolic signifiers of clothing, naming, and other signifiers as appropriate.

How does the “male gaze” privilege or minimize gendered characters in your chosen text?

Reference the assigned readings from your text as well as lectures given to date.

Provide “works cited” at end.
