Internet Culture and Gender
This is a course in Women's Studies at Åbo Akademi University. The teacher of the course, Ann-Charlotte Palmgren, will post course information in the blog and students of the course will post blog entries about different aspects of internet culture and gender.
The aim of the course is to discuss and analyze internet culture, social media and gender from a feminist perspective. Through case studies the course examines how gender, sexuality, femininity and masculinity are constructed online (in for example blogs, Facebook, Second Life, massively multiplayer online games such as World of Warcraft, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, hotornot.com, chat forums and online dating sites). Through these case studies, the course will reflect on how the construction of gender and sexuality is related to questions of normativity and power.
