In his book Media Unlimited: How the Torrent of Images and Sounds Overwhelms Our Lives, Todd Gitlin (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. argues that the contemporary world is bombarded with media to an extreme he calls “supersaturation.” Images, reproduced diminished versions of real things and places, create a “media torrent” that shapes our culture, our lives, our selves.Jean Kilbourne, in her talk “The Naked Truth,” focuses on the “media torrent’s” portrayal of gender, arguing that advertisements set unrealistic and unhealthy standards of gender performance. Like Gitlin, Kilbourne points out that we can’t escape the influence of these images. Even if we claim to not pay attention to ads, they both argue, we are nonetheless subject to their influence because we live in a culture shaped by what Kilbourne calls the “tyranny of the ideal image of beauty.” For this seminar, you will delve into the “media torrent” on your own, and find two pieces of media that portray gender in some way. For each example you’ve chosen, make sure to provide specific information about what the media is and where it came from. Whenever possible, upload the media into your assignment. Then compose an explanation / analysis that explains how you see this media contributing to our society’s conception of gender, our understanding of gender roles, and our individual expression of gender as part of our identity.You also can’t use any adsfeatured in Kilbourne’s talk.requirement: 600+ words
