9781444338546: The Handbook of Gender, Sex and Media

The Handbook of Gender, Sex and Media offers original insights into the complex set of relations which exist between gender, sex, sexualities and the media, and in doing so, showcases new research at the forefront of media and communication practice and theory.

  • Brings together a collection of new, cutting-edge research exploring a number of different facets of the broad relationship between gender and media
  • Moves beyond associating gender with man/woman and instead considers the relationship between the construction of gender norms, biological sex and the mediation of sex and sexuality
  • Offers genuinely new insights into the complicated and complex set of relations which exist between gender, sex, sexualities and the media
  • Essay topics range from the continuing sexism of TV advertising to ways in which the internet is facilitating the (re)invention of our sexual selves.

From the Back Cover:

This volume represents a fundamental change in how we conceptualize the mediation of gender, sex, and sexualities. It brings together a collection of new research that includes, but also extends beyond, comparisons between woman/man, into considerations of more complex and fluid notions of sex and identity.

Each of the five themes in the collection opens with an authoritative, overview essay that provides a historical overview of the research and scholarship in the particular thematic, giving context to the articles that follow. Ranging across a number of different media, including print, television, and the Internet, this collection explores the ways in which, on the one hand, popular media are complicit in the stereotypical reproduction of sex and gender “norms” and, on the other, the ways in which we are increasingly becoming architects and chroniclers of our differently constituted selves.

The volume showcases new research at the cutting edge of media and communication practice and theory, offering genuinely novel insights into the complex set of relations that exists between gender, sex, sexualities, and the media.
