Venue: AS6 Level 3, CNM Playroom 03-38, NUS
 
Research about gender and the media constitutes an important part of a scholarship of media and communication as well as gender studies. It emerged about half a century ago, initially as ‘women and media’ studies. Since then, many empirical studies have been conducted and a number of concepts and theories have been developed. This lecture, organised by the Cultural Research Centre, introduces you to this exciting research area with a focus on contemporary Japan. After an overview of the research so far, the lecture presents the current situation related to digital media and identifies old and new gender issues therein.
