Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will learn to interpret vintage advertisements and spot problematic (sexist) themes and ideas. The course also includes rhetorical analysis to understand the purpose and audience of each ad. 
I have been an English professor for 10+ years, which involves teaching through a feminist lens. My terminal degree, an MFA in Creative Nonfiction, focused on feminist narratives. In addition, my undergraduate degree in English with a minor in History prepared me for a career as a feminist educator. At the collegiate level, I teach education majors how to address diversity issues in their classroom in a class called Teaching Diversity Through Young Adult Literature. My essays on feminism and pop culture have been published by Jezebel, Everyday Feminism, Role Reboot, and Salon. I have also been teaching feminism courses on Outschool since early 2020. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
None of the advertisements in this course are sexually explicit or violent. However, they do utilize sexist themes, including dehumanization and objectification. Students should be mature enough to handle a discussion of how advertisers use sexuality and desirability to sell products.
