Overview

Understand more about gender, media and society by exploring celebrity culture

What makes a celebrity? Why are celebrities significant? How do celebrities connect to our construction of ourselves as gendered beings? Is ‘celebrity feminism’ good for gender equality? These are just some of the questions you’ll be answering on this course.

Using celebrity case studies you will explore questions of media production, identity, visibility, activism and social and cultural change. You will also learn how feminist research has used celebrity culture to make sense of gendered, racial, classed and sexual identities.

This course is for anyone interested in gender and celebrity culture, you don’t need any previous experience.
