ENG 548

Parenting, Media, and Culture

This course focuses on representations of parenting from diverse historical, geographical, and intersectional positions. By examining content from literature, magazines, film, TV, and social media, students explore how maternal and paternal experiences, roles, and identities (i.e., heteronormative, queer, trans, and racialized) are rendered in relation to traditional ideologies of “good” and “bad” caregiving, and to contemporary preoccupations with topics like the “mommy wars,” the “new masculinity,” “helicopter” parenting, and celebrity role models.
