Final Project: Gender in Popular Music

Coachgenderpalooza Poster

For my final project in Gender & Popular Culture (AMST 3010), I have decided to explore the spectrum of representation of gender in American popular music. The creative aspects of the project include a video compilation and an accompanying graphic and “festival poster.” They portray eleven songs that serve as case studies for the vast variation of gender attitudes across genres and eras. For my Final Paper, I take an in-depth look specifically at the positive representations of gender and explore the intersectionality and various feminisms they incorporate.
