The aims of this course are twofold: to introduce students to a range of visual practices that address gender and to engage with a variety of approaches to understanding gender and visual culture. Central themes in current gender debates in the art world will be examined including: the sexual politics of looking; the body and performance art; art history and sexual difference; men in feminism; cross-dressing and gender ambiguity; decoration, ornament and the feminine. While debates within feminism will be central to this course, we will also address the way the study of gender intersects with other methodologies including; queer theory, psychoanalysis, post-colonialism and post-modernism.
