COMS - 6720 Communication and Identity (3)


Examines identity from a critical/poststructuralist position, approaching the notion of identity as a discursive production within complex systems of power. Analyzes how discourse influences personal identity construction and the ways it constructs ideas about other identities (gender, race, sexuality, etc.). Explores how identity is shaped by rhetorical, discursive, and non-discursive practices; and how identity construction is situated in historical/social/political/ideological contexts. Equivalent to COMS-5720, COMS-520. Prerequisite: take CMP 6100 .
