Feminist Studies

FMST 194C Gender and Iconicity

Examines icons and the processes through which an iconicity is constructed and circulated in its complexity. Icons and iconicities often link or articulate various ideologies, affects, and systems of thought into a potent symbol or a mythology. Icons constitute norms, but also disrupt them; icons could articulate new technologies, aesthetics and their representations of the self with purportedly older modes of being in the world, such as a transcendent belief in a god, a faith, etc.


Prerequisite(s): satisfaction of the Entry Level Writing and Composition requirements, and FMST 1 and FMST 100. Enrollment restricted to senior feminist studies majors.
