Description

This panel explored the concept of “media migrations” from two perspectives. It explored representations of migration, in terms of the movement of bodies across borders, and it explored the movement of media itself, in the form of images and ideas, across culture, space, and time. It examined how media migrations inform social identities, in relation to gender, ethnicity, race, sexuality, nation, and class. The panel’s focus on the intersection of gender and media was designed to explore how social constructions of masculinity and femininity are negotiated in dialogue with media and how media that engages migration themes and/or moves within or across spatial territories serves to socialize, reveal, or reinvent gender identities in complex and unconventional ways.
