More About The Course
Whether you are Mickey's #1 fan, or you would rather catch that mouse in a trap, there is no denying that Disney has a major impact on our culture. In this class, we'll use critical reading and writing to explore the role of the mega corporation that is Disney, looking at the myriad ways Disney affects notions about gender and race, and shapes our ideas about media and leisure. From theme parks to film, we'll explore the way Disney shapes who we are, taking an especially close look at the messages Disney sends to children. Writers will engage in critical reading, research, discussion, and peer review to create a series of texts that look beneath the surface of the Disney facade. Disney may claim to be the happiest place on earth, but in this class, we'll have some fun challenging that claim, with our ears on and our eyes wide open!
