"Gender and Media" Book Launch with dr. Tonny Krijnen

On November 24, the book launch for Gender and Media will take place at the Faculty Club (H-Building) in the Blijdorpzaal (H17-01) from 16.30-18.00. There will be drinks afterwards in the Faculty Club Lounge.

Gender and Media

Why do some TV genres have the label feminine or masculine? Why do we worry about boys playing video games too much while girls play just as often? Is the TV show Sex and the City empowering or not? Why are recent television shows like Desperate Housewives post-feminist television? 

Gender and Media explores these and other complex questions by offering a critical overview of the contemporary debates and discussions surrounding gender and mediated communication, and by providing students with an overview of the current academic research on these topics.
