How boys don’t cry represent gender and transgender issues?
For this exercise, you are required to maintain an individual student blog. The central aim and requirement of this assessment: to critically and creatively engage with the course content and with other students enrolled in the course through a personal blog. We encourage you select examples from screen, media and popular culture to analyse (TV, film, news, advertising, online texts, social networking sites, etc.), as well as examples from every life, everyday practices, products, cultures, lifestyles and identities. A key part of this task it to comment on and engage meaningfully with the blogs of other students in the course by posting comments and posing questions.
The content of the blog is up to you. You are welcome to treat this as your personal online space and to be as individual and creative as you like in its use. Express yourself, talk about things that matter to you and socialize with your fellow bloggers. However, the ultimate academic objective of the exercise—and thus the major grounds for its assessment—is an active engagement with the conceptual and critical content of the subject. This engagement can be realized and evidenced in many ways: through explicit discussion of content from the reader and lectures; through discussion of issues that reflect, touch upon, exemplify and/or illuminate subject material in various ways; through a reflection upon one’s learning experiences in the subject or at university more generally; through discussion of issues drawn from the diverse field of contemporary media cultures.
