MESA 2350 - Women and Media in the Middle East and South Asia

In this course we will study depictions and images of women in news media in selected countries (Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, India, Pakistan) as well as in the American media. We will especially compare images of women in mainstream news media with those available in online media channels or social news networks. We will also examine the changing status of women journalists worldwide, with a special focus on their role in the Arab Spring.
