“Technologies of Gender”

Monday/Wednesday 11:15 – 12:30, CASE S+H

“The Internet is for Porn!”  While the musical Avenue Q may have expressed what we have all been secretly thinking, porn is not the only way we find sexual connection online.  Also, we meet, break up, flirt, and get rejected.  In this class we will explore relationships mediated
through the internet as well as online self expression as gendered and sexual beings.  Highlights of this class include:

• Internet and pornography
• Sexuality and gender in video games
• Breaking up on Facebook
• Race and online personal ads
• Internet dating in a sexually segregated society
• Transgender expression on Tumblr
• Intimacy in Second Life
