Course Descriptions - Interdisciplinary Studies

INTD 317 The Body Project

Flip through a magazine. Watch a YouTube video. Listen to a pop song. In our world, it is impossible to avoid messages about our bodies - messages which bear great meaning. This course will explore the cultural meaning attached to, reflected by, and created by bodies. Through an examination of American culture across the twentieth century and into the present, we will consider how our conceptions and perceptions of the body have changed over time, with special attention to the role of race, class, gender, and sexual orientation.
