Cíle předmětu
The course is focused on media representation of female heroines in different media contents. Its attendees will learn about different media representations of females in media, ranging from advertisement, TV series, movies etc. We will talk about the importance of media representation in the context of typical “representation tropes” associated with female heroines. After the theoretical background is discussed in each seminar, examples from movies, TV series, news, and advertisement will be presented and analyzed in group discussions. An active approach from students is expected and required for the successful completion of the course.
