Course Description: Employing recent theories from gender and post-colonial studies, as well as media studies, this course analyzes a wide range of case studies from contemporary visual culture, across a broad scope of genres and technologies. It invites students to critically think of concepts such as representation, mediation, and dissemination. Moreover, it provides a novel approach to art, culture, and technology by challenging the primacy of vision and by injecting an intersectional perspective. This course introduces gender as a key concept while looking at various cultural practices in the visual and technological field: film, photography, the Internet, mass media, art, contemporary art theory, as well as social performances of memory, citizenship, and nationalism. It uses feminist research methodologies to open up fresh perspectives on these practices and to rethink our encounter with various forms of artistic, technological, and cultural expressions. In this engagement, the course also offers an introduction into the growing field of feminist techno sciences and new media studies, and explores in both a creative and a critical way new technological and digital cultures that our daily lives couldn't do without.
