Revolution or Evolution: How media describes the change in gender roles in the early 21st century

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This panel has gathered together case study style presentations that look at the ways media is "playing out" gender roles on our multiple screens in a wide selection of programming. We wonder, are past gender roles being reified, or do newer media platforms bring out new gender roles and issues? This panel aims to deepen our understanding of what might be revolutionary, and what might be evolutionary about today's programming in the area of gender roles.
